Emotions run high during a divorce. People focus on what went wrong and how a happy relationship went sour. Ultimately, it can cause deep-seeded anger to come to the surface. This anger can cause people to act irrationally. A Long Island divorce attorney can help control these emotions and keep a person focused on what is important.
One common issue arises when there is a disagreement over custody. Although it is often unintentional, the children can get caught between their parents during a divorce. It is important for each parent to understand that the Courts will promote the children having a relationship with both parents. Therefore each parent needs to be careful to not burn bridges or try to sow seeds of discord in the child. Indeed, the Courts will not tolerate parents who disparage the other.
Another relevant issue is property division. Each party needs to understand that under New York law, marital property is divided equitably.
A divorce attorney is a valuable ally during this process. They can help a person with the emotional aspects of a divorce as well as the legal aspects. By explaining the process and keeping a person focused on what is important, the couple can get started on their new life and focus on the future instead of the past.
