The end of a marriage is only the beginning of legal issues ranging from alimony to child custody to division of assets. Although a very common occurrence in today’s world, the legal act of ending a marriage is still an extremely challenging and difficult experience. Even for those who are ready to part, divorce touches people deeply and emotionally, as it means the end of a once loving relationship.
And although taking the steps to terminate a marriage can be devastating, divorce is an important option that liberates us from a difficult and sometimes hopeless condition. Some divorces are handled easier than others. Some divorces are tough and complicated to get through while others are resolved quickly. A great deal depends on the attitude of the marriage partners and whether children are involved, custody is an issue and if there are a number of debts and assets to be divided. A divorce attorney can lead you through the process easily and quickly. If each partner is cooperative, things can generally move along at a rapid pace.
If on the other hand, one or the other partner is unreceptive to the divorce, or one is greedy in nature, it may be more difficult to dissolve the marriage.
