Dealing with strong emotions during a custody dispute

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2018 | Child Custody

While any divorce issue can be tricky, our law firm knows that family law matters can be very tough for parents. Beroes Law Center understands the diverse pressures that parents may be facing, whether they are worried about how they will be financially impacted by child support payments or the division of property. Moreover, custody matters can be particularly stressful and it is vital for you to make sure that you approach this facet of family law with care since so much is at stake. When parents have a clear understanding of the best path forward, the entire divorce process may be easier from an emotional point of view.

Unfortunately, custody disputes can bring out many strong and negative emotions regardless of the steps that are taken by a parent. Feelings such as anger, depression and anxiety are not uncommon. However, you should try to deal with these emotions properly and you should never let them get in the way of your case. For example, having an emotional outburst in court may be problematic and if you are struggling with an overwhelming amount of stress, this may get in the way of your ability to prepare.

You should do what you can to manage these emotions in a healthy manner. For example, you may find that certain activities such as hiking make it easier for you to move forward and deal with these feelings. Our page on various family law issues involving children provides other material related to disputes over custody.
