Tips for getting through a divorce

It's no secret that the end of a marriage can be exhausting, confusing and have many negative impacts on both parties. The life changes and legal aspects that accompany a divorce can be emotionally and physically exhausting. After being married for a significant amount of time, Arizona couples that have recently split may find themselves struggling to adjust to a new solitary lifestyle. There are certain things that can be done to ease the suffering and quiet the mind of those that are dealing with a divorce.

New child custody study supports shared custody

One of the biggest questions for Arizona parents after divorce is the custody of their children. When it comes to post-divorce child custody, statistics show that mothers are awarded full custody in almost 80 percent of cases. One reason for this is the belief that conflict between parents may cause the greatest amounts of stress for children. Historically, children have often placed in the mother's home for stability while allowing the father visitation rights. However, new research suggests that parental conflict plays a much smaller role than previously thought when it comes to the health and happiness of children.

In Arizona, custody laws exist to facilitate the needs of both parents and children. When couples with children decide to split, both parents must understand that the well-being of the child should remain the top priority. Unfortunately, when parents can't see eye to eye and are at odds in a child custody battle, it is the children who suffer the most. Recently, a custody battle involving the daughter of famous actress Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac made headlines.

Advice for a successful divorce

Contrary to popular belief, ending a marriage doesn't have to be a messy, drawn-out process. Divorce these days is a common-enough occurrence that sometimes can be the best course of action for couples struggling with their marriage. Although divorce can be a tumultuous and emotional experience, it can also be a time of rediscovery and renewed optimism as new life begins. When a couple in Arizona decide to end their marriage, there are steps they can take to better prepare and protect themselves.
