When a family law issue does not go your way

On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Family Law on Friday, December 15, 2017.

There are a wide variety of family law matters that people struggle through, whether they are centered around the custody of a child, the distribution of a couple’s marital property, or a child support order. With careful planning and the right approach, some people are able to find favorable outcomes that benefit them for years to come. On the other hand, some people do not secure the end result that they were looking for, which can be especially hard with family law matters.

Unlike other areas of law, which may not have such an emotional impact, family law cases can be very emotionally charged. There is far more at stake than one’s finances or property. Often, family law rulings affect children and their ability to spend time with a parent. As a result, it is understandable that people who do not find the outcome they wanted may feel sad, angry, or stressed out. If you are in this position, however, you could benefit from maintaining your emotions as much as possible.

Sometimes, people are able to turn a family law ruling around in the future. For example, someone who has been ordered to pay a certain amount of child support may be able to modify their order if their financial circumstances change considerably. For example, the loss of a job could necessitate this change.
