There are many different fathers’ rights issues that people struggle with during their divorce and after they have split up with their spouse, from a custody dispute to problems involving child support payments. Divorce can be challenging for many different reasons and for some people, there are unique considerations related to the time of year they decide to bring their marriage to an end. For example, the summer months can affect a divorce in different ways and it is crucial to be aware of these matters if you are approaching the divorce process.
During the summer, some people may have more time to work through their divorce (such as those who have a break from work during this season), while others may have less time because the field they are employed in is busiest during the summertime. Moreover, with kids out of school, parents may need to be especially careful and avoid exposing their child to unnecessary divorce-related stress. Furthermore, with back-to-school season around the corner, parents may need to keep their divorce from interfering with other important responsibilities.
If you have a busy work schedule during the summer, you should not allow your rights to be trampled on or settle for a less favorable outcome because you are too busy. It is important to know your legal options and be fully prepared for any obstacles that may arise. Our page on fathers’ rights goes over additional topics that relate to the end of marriage and family law issues that arise afterward.
