 Student Loan Debt

Should you settle issues in a divorce action?

One of the dynamics of a divorce is that parties are not inclined to settle issues when they are hurt or angry. The emotions involved in a divorce action makes it extremely difficult for parties to resolve the issues of the marriage rationally.

There may be some issues that your spouse has taken a stand that would be inequitable to you in the division of assets and debts, or that may not be in the best interests of your children. In those circumstances, litigation may be necessary and unavoidable.

However, there may be issues that the parties are not really that far apart in resolving. Consider a compromise of the issues where common grounds exist. Compromise and settlement are better for you and your health in the long run.

If you have questions, please call me at (513) 631-0022.
