When a marriage comes to an end, some people find themselves in new relationships shortly thereafter. Some people are involved in a different relationship during their former marriage, while others move on quickly after their marriage ends. We know that this creates various problems in some instances, especially when it comes to family law. For example, some people have increased difficulty during the divorce process or while dealing with post-divorce legal matters because of their current partner, especially if these issues involve children from a previous relationship or contact with one’s ex.
If your current partner is not understanding or supportive, it is important to explain why focusing on the family law matters you are working through is so crucial. Working with a former spouse or partner often makes the divorce process move forward smoother, even if doing so is difficult and a current partner is not supportive. Moreover, if a new partner is interfering with someone’s relationship with their child or their ability to obtain the most favorable custody outcome, this requires urgent attention. In some cases, people benefit from ending their new relationship as a result of their current partner’s failure to understand what they are going through.
Aside from these issues, family law matters often place strain on other relationships, which is why working through custody issues and other difficult aspects of family law properly is so pivotal.
