Not every divorce is acrimonious. In fact, many Massachusetts divorces unfold without drama, leaving former partners as respectful acquaintances or involved supporters of their shared children and friends. When couples are able to put their hostilities aside, the potential negative impact that a divorce can have on a couple and those close to it may be mitigated to a manageable amount.
However, there are still some divorce and other family law scenarios that leave individuals battling over particular issues or, in some instances, every possible aspect of their legal dispute. Conflict may not be completely avoidable in all family law cases and, when some parties to a divorce begin to fight, it can be next to impossible to return negotiations to a respectful demeanor. In such cases, the families and friends of the battling parties may feel the stresses of divorce in a more acute way. Many times, an experienced lawyer can help settle these matters in a way that is fair.
Aside from the actual litigants, children may feel the negative effects of divorce more than anyone else. Children can become caught up in the drama between their divorcing parents. Some unscrupulous individuals may even attempt to use their children as bargaining tools in a divorce settlement or other family law agreement.
Even once a divorce is finalized some people have trouble accepting the terms of their divorces and may actively choose to ignore court-mandated orders. The failure to pay child support or the intentional submission of delinquent payments for child support may be ways that disgruntled parents try to take their frustrations out on their former spouses. What these individuals fail to realize is that the ultimate victims of their inappropriate actions are their kids.
