Prematurely ending a divorce can be a very difficult process, especially when the divorce is riddled with conflict. The conflicts typically arise from several topics, custody, child support, property division, and spousal maintenance (alimony). There are also a wide variety of legal requirements, practical concerns, emotional difficulties, and more that arise from a high conflict divorce along with the contentious relationship.

Even if their safety is not immediately threatened, many people have questions or concerns about the divorce process especially in regard to high conflict divorce. Some of these questions and concerns include:
Especially in high conflict divorces your former spouse may try to harm the relationship that you have with your kids. They usually do this to either out of malice or for an advantage in disputes for child custody or parenting time/visitation. To protect your parental rights, you need a family law lawyer in your corner.
Even if infidelity was the cause of your divorce, it is not always necessary to bring up the issue when filing for divorce or settling divorce disputes, unless alimony is an issue. But it is important to understand how your ex-spouses’ new relationship will affect asset dissipation and the children’s issues in divorce.
Harassment can take a variety of different forms in a high conflict divorce. Ex-spouses send unwanted phone calls or texts, disclose private information, or even install recording devices in your home. Our lawyers will take the necessary legal actions to address these issues, including pursuing legal action if needed.
The mental health and substance abuse of a former spouse can have a significant impact on child custody and spousal maintenance. Our family law office can help you comprehend these issues and even determine if a request for a mental health evaluation is necessary.
