Divorce is one of the most complex and difficult situations you will ever face. The combination of painful emotions, domestic upheaval, and financial change can make it difficult to think clearly and find your way through the situation. The crazier and nastier your divorce gets, the harder it becomes to work through it. There are many reasons why a settlement is the best way to resolve your divorce, but here are the top three.
- Your sanity. The longer the divorce goes on, the more stress you will likely feel. The sheer time commitment can be damaging to your emotions and your career. The rollercoaster of a trial saps your energy and drowns any connection you might have left with your co-parent. A settlement stops the madness, removes the uncertainty, and allows you to move forward to a future you design for yourself.
- Money. Although it definitely feels like divorce is about emotions, it usually ends up being primarily about money. Who gets what, who pays what, and who owes what are the primary issues. The longer that you and your ex disagree about these primary points, the more it will cost in legal and court fees. There will actually be less to divide the longer you argue. There is also a lot of uncertainty when you go to trial. If you reach a settlement you are able to create a compromise you both can agree to.
- Your kids. The longer the case goes on, the more stress it places on your children. They are always aware of tension between their parents. If you are fighting about custody, it is even harder because they feel placed in the middle of your conflict.
