Handling a serious illness during divorce

There are many different factors that can make family law matters and the divorce process more complicated, some of which have been discussed on this blog. For example, with children returning to school and questions that arise during the holidays, certain times of year can present additional divorce-related concerns for people in Boston and across Massachusetts. Unfortunately, if you are suffering from a serious illness, you may find that the divorce process seems even more challenging. However, it is essential to do what you can to prevent your illness from creating additional challenges due to negative outcomes in the courtroom.

There is a myriad of ways that illnesses can interfere with divorce, which you might be all too familiar with. For example, you could be losing sleep, required to take medications that make you drowsy, feeling under the weather, or struggling with emotions such as anxiety and depression. However, if you are in the process of ending your marriage, it is vital to focus on putting your best foot forward and doing what you can to achieve a favorable outcome. Even though an illness can make daily life hard, you should still try to keep a positive demeanor and carefully go over any details that will be relevant to your case.

During a divorce, it is critical to know your rights and be prepared, especially if there is much at stake, from the custody of children to the division of assets. In our divorce section, you will be able to read through more information concerning the end of marriage.
