If You Can, Work Things Out Whether You Stay or Leave...

Updated: May 11, 2021

Relationships are naturally difficult to navigate. I always imagine the emotional journey in relationships are the equivalent to the climbings of hills and mountains. There is an innate struggle, but if you set your mind to climb and overcome you can do it. In deciding to cease a relationship that has a beautiful connection of life, it can be one of the most challenging and strenuous thing that an individual can endure.

Do not take such a journey lightly, but understand that the decision and process is hard on all parties involved, especially when you decide or forced to go through the Family Court System. There is a delusion that if a person has an attorney or if there is an abundance of money then the process going through Family Court is easier. Have you seen the divorces of the filthy rich?

They have some of the worst separation, custody, and divorce experiences. A main reason for such dire occurrences is because they are in an emotional state and there are lawyers and Judges inflaming the situation for profit. I always tell anyone that is thinking about divorce or child custody issues to get a hold of your emotions and focus on what is best for your child(ren) and your personal situation. It does not make sense to spend thousands of dollars on one hearing, just to be back in court in a couple of months to spend even more because you are emotional and hurt, when you can come to an agreement on a pleuretha of issues or resolve the situation completely.

There are a number of options of dispute resolution, such as mediation that can assist in resolving your issues with respect and understanding. If at all possible try to stay away from people who prey on you during an emotional state, and focus on processes that assist in resolving issues not create more emotional burden and heartache.
