Why people shouldn’t seek revenge in a divorce case

On Behalf of | Feb 13, 2018 | Divorce

North Carolina estranged spouses who believe that divorce will be a good measure of revenge may want to rethink their strategy. In most cases, revenge may feel good for a little while before causing people to needlessly think about their hurt and anger. By refraining from seeking revenge, it may be able to move past the reason an individual wanted to get back at a spouse in the first place.

Individuals who have children will not want to put them in the middle of an argument between their parents. In some cases, parents may want to try to prove to their kids that the divorce was someone else’s fault. In doing so, they could bring them into the drama surrounding the dispute. Furthermore, they may harm their relationship with their children and any relationship that they may have had with the other parent.

It is possible that seeking revenge by getting a divorce could cause both spouses to endure a lengthy settlement process. This may result in spouses seeing each other more than they would like to. It may also result in the kids having to talk to professionals or otherwise become a part of the process. Avoiding revenge may be the best way to gain closure and move on in a timely manner.

In a divorce, there may be many issues that must be decided such as who will get custody of the children or if either party is entitled to alimony. In many cases, a couple can negotiate a resolution to these and other matters with the help of their respective family law attorneys.
