Divorce, custody and your career

There are many factors that can make bringing marriage to an end so tough, but family law issues which involve your kids are often particularly difficult. Not only can these matters be an emotional rollercoaster, but there is so much at stake, including your child’s future. Moreover, family law issues which involve kids, such as disputes surrounding child custody, can carry over into other facets of your life. For example, if you are going through a very bitter custody dispute you may notice that your job is adversely impacted by the challenges.

There are other ways in which a custody dispute may relate to your career as well. For example, your income and work hours, as well as certain aspects of your job (such as traveling overseas for business), may factor into how custody is awarded. Depending on the outcome of a custody dispute, you may decide to work more hours, or you may need to take some time off. Some people may have an especially difficult experience during a dispute over child custody because of career-related challenges they are facing, whether they recently lost their job or have been struggling with an unusually demanding workload.

Ultimately, a custody dispute can affect your career and your life in many ways, and it is pivotal to do everything you can to prepare. The decisions you make during this time could affect your life (and your child’s life) in various ways. We cover many other topics related to family law on our website and these matters should be given extra attention.
