Should parents stay in broken marriages because of custody fears?

On Behalf of | Dec 2, 2019 | divorce | 0 comments

People may be hesitant to initiate divorce for a lot of different reasons. For example, they may be under a considerable amount of pressure due to their job, and they may feel like they are unable to take on any more responsibilities or deal with any other stressors in life. In some instances, people do not want to approach the divorce process even though they desperately want to end their marriage and move on with their lives. Sometimes, these concerns are directly related to a certain divorce issue, such as child custody.

There are countless reasons why child custody matters can be stressful for parents. Some parents may worry that they will not be able to spend as much time with their child following a custody decision, and others may be afraid that they will not be able to see their child altogether. Moreover, some parents worry about the emotional impact in terms of a custody dispute and their child’s well-being. For example, they may think that sharing custody with another parent while living apart may be burdensome for the child.

Regrettably, many people have decided to stay in toxic and broken marriages as a result of these concerns. In some instances, serious issues such as domestic violence are present but people do not move on from the marriage because they are worried about a custody dispute or some other issue involving their kids. Our law office believes that people should never feel trapped in an abusive or otherwise toxic marriage, and there is more information concerning the divorce process on our site.
