Everyone knows the cliches about the difficulties that come with spending time with family around the holidays but the reality is that the holidays do put a serious strain on relationships. With the financial pressures of Christmas and fights over extended family gatherings, the holiday season is often the straw that broke the camels back and which leads to the beginning of the divorce process. Before making the decision to get divorced or before starting the process it is very beneficial for individuals to understand a little more about divorce.
The Realities of Divorce
A lot of individuals come into our office and they either want the world or they are concerned that their spouse is going to take everything and the first reality to understand is that there are seldom huge windfalls for either party in divorce. Most divorces end in a settlement agreement between the parties after they realize this fact and decide to make compromises and the divorces that do actually go to trial are decided by the judge who tries to make a fair and equitable decision. So even though your spouse may be yelling “I’m going to take every penny” the reality is that both parties are probably going to come out of the divorce thinking they didn’t get enough or they gave to much, that’s just the nature of compromise.
