In most situations, getting a divorce is a difficult process. Stress levels often run high, and many times emotions can get the best of all involved. A partner at a law firm in another state recently had some words of wisdom for those going through a Texas divorce or one elsewhere around the country. The partner makes it clear that, in her experience, the judge in a divorce case does not care about whatever personal drama may be occurring.
She shared that one spouse involved in the divorce proceedings may often bring copious documentation of the other spouse's activities, with hopes of potentially proving an affair. They often keep records of indiscretions with hope of swaying a judge's opinion during the case. However, most judges are immune to anything thrown their way since they've likely seen it all before.
To the judges, the divorce proceedings are more about the financial situation of the parties involved. According to the judges, in most cases, it all comes down to dollars and cents. To even be considered in the divorce, the activity has to be shocking. Buying expensive jewelry or taking extravagant trips would potentially get the attention of a judge. But it's because such gifts or trips may actually affect a couple's finances.
Individuals contemplating a Texas divorce often contact an experienced attorney to help them through this trying time. The issues of a divorce may seem daunting and complicated. However, legal counsel familiar with divorce issues can be a trusted partner in helping someone get his or her life back on track.
