Suicide and family law

Family law issues can create many different hardships for people, and some people have an especially difficult time dealing with legal issues related to their former spouse or children. For example, suicide may affect an individual from a family law perspective, and it is important to be aware of the different ways in which this terrible decision could impact your case. Some people become suicidal in the wake of a tough divorce or an unfavorable custody decision, and this can place additional strain on a family that is already struggling to move forward.

If you are feeling suicidal, it is imperative to address these feelings promptly and make sure that you do not do anything based on a temporary problem that may be resolved in the future. Also, if your former spouse or the other parent of your child committed suicide, or is threatening to commit suicide, this may affect you from a family law perspective. For example, if you are going through a custody dispute you may want to draw attention to this issue in court.

If your ex has already committed suicide, you may be distraught and completely unsure of how to move forward. You may now need to raise a child by yourself and this could affect you even if you do not have kids. For example, you may not need to pay child support or alimony any longer. Suicide is just one example of unique challenges that affect some people who are working through family law matters.
