Mental trauma following a custody dispute

On Behalf of | Jul 30, 2019 | Family Law

Family law issues can be emotionally draining in many different ways. Sometimes, people simply feel stressed out after a tough divorce, even if everything moved forward relatively smoothly. In other instances, people may be angry with the way in which marital property was split up, or they may have concerns about their ability to make child support payments on time. However, family law issues which involve children can be particularly difficult, such as custody disputes. Moreover, some parents may have mental trauma in the wake of a custody dispute—even if the ruling was in their favor.

For many parents, the thought of losing a child or being unable to spend much time with a child is one of their worst nightmares. Moreover, this can become a reality for some parents following the divorce process. Even those who are able to share custody with their ex may not be able to spend as much time with their kids as they would like to, and this can be very draining and upsetting. Some people even develop mental trauma, which can take a toll on other aspects of their lives (including their relationships with their children).

Our law office knows that some custody disputes can be very bitter and complicated, which can leave parents feeling uneasy about what they have been through and unsure about their future. Some may have mental scars following a bitter dispute, and these feelings should be deal with carefully. Moreover, there may be some options on the table to help parents who are facing these hurdles. For example, a parent may be able to revisit the topic of child custody later on.
