Divorce, whether contested or uncontested, can be a complex legal process. When children are involved, even an amicable divorce can become an overwhelming emotional battle. When property is involved, it is important to take action to ensure that your future interests are addressed. Although technically a divorce is a decision made and carried out between two people, the truth is that the choice to enter into a divorce will have much wider-spread ramifications. Whether considering the effect on the couple’s children, or how relationships, such as in-laws, extended family or friends, it is impossible to deny the consequence divorce will have on your life.
