Divorce can be hard for many reasons for couples who are facing a number of challenges, from financial problems to negative emotions such as stress or depression. For some people, such as those who are pregnant, the end of a marriage and the numerous family law issues that may arise can be especially difficult to deal with. For example, someone who is expecting a child may be unsure of how custody will be awarded or whether they will be able to receive child support. Moreover, they may worry about how marital property will be divided and how to deal with legal matters during pregnancy.
If you are pregnant, it is important to focus on your health and the well-being of your unborn child. However, you should not overlook various family law concerns that you may have, either. The steps you take during the divorce process and even after your divorce has been finalized may have a significant impact on your future and your child’s future also. Our law office fully recognizes how challenging family law issues can be, especially for someone who is simultaneously dealing with pregnancy. Staying focused and having a clear understanding of your legal options is paramount.
Family law matters such as property division, alimony and custody disputes can be very difficult, and it is crucial to prevent these hurdles from affecting your health as a pregnant woman. It may be helpful to discuss the challenges you are facing with your ex, although this is not always possible and may not be advisable in some instances.
