Going through a divorce is stressful. Not only do you have to deal with the legal aspects of the situation, but you must deal with your emotions and the prospect of moving on as well. When children are involved, the entire situation becomes that much more complicated.
One of the best ways to get through a divorce is to get through the legal issues as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, disagreements can significantly delay divorce proceedings. This is actually a fairly common issue because couples aren’t typically in a place where they want to cooperate with one another.
But, cooperation is absolutely required when you are going through a divorce. Before you can settle your divorce, you must come to an agreement on property and debt as well as child support and alimony. If these items cannot be settled by the couple, a court proceeding must take place to decide them for you.
In some cases, it is even possible for parties involved in the divorce to delay it intentionally. For example, if one member of the couple does not want the divorce, they may intentionally do things to stall in the hopes of reconciling.
If you are in this situation, you can ask the court to help you. In some cases, the court may enforce the settlement agreement even if the other side is not willing to accept it. This is something that is often done when waiting is causing undue stress and financial issues for one member of the couple.
As before mentioned, going through a divorce is stressful. But, when you begin delaying the proceedings, the situation only becomes more difficult. If you are currently in this situation, make sure you talk to your attorney regarding a resolution.
