As many Knoxville couples going through divorce already know, the road to a split can be rocky and rough. This is why, at the Law Office of Meghan A. Bodie, we strive to provide you with as much information as possible upfront so you can prepare yourself for the potential hurdles ahead.

The problems, conflicts and hurdles that arise during a divorce can generally be broken down into a few different categories: finances, emotions, and relationships. Several things can fall under several categories at once. For example, child support payments may affect your relationships, emotional state, and finances all at once. Alimony will likely affect at least two of these things, as will prenuptial or postnuptial agreements.

Generally speaking, your divorce may also become harder to handle if there’s more riding on it. Divorces involving large sums of money or children can cause one or both parent to feel cornered and may cause them to lash out or act rashly. This is why some people may consider mediators or counseling during the divorce procedure, which can help alleviate some emotional strain. Even in uncontested divorces, however, there is almost always going to be some measure of emotional distress or discomfort.

Keep in mind that there is no cookie-cutter way of handling divorce and that all splitting couples have different needs and priorities. To read more about some of the more common hurdles that you may encounter during your divorce, just head over to the provided link and check out our webpage.
