Stress and depression over property division

On Behalf of | Mar 11, 2020 | Uncategorized |

Many aspects of the divorce process are tough for people, such as those who face uncertainty regarding child custody and people who find themselves in a bitter dispute with their ex during a contested divorce. However, financial matters, especially the distribution of marital property, are especially tough for many people as they work through the end of their marriage. Property division often generates a lot of uncertainty in terms of how divorce will impact one’s assets and many people become stressed out and even depressed as a result of these changes. 

Handling negative emotions is pivotal for multiple reasons. For starters, excessive anxiety and depression often interfere with one’s ability to maneuver their divorce and work toward an outcome that serves their best interests. Moreover, these negative emotions carry over into many other aspects of life at a time when moving forward is pivotal. There are different ways people can address these negative feelings and pursue favorable outcomes, such as reviewing the ins and outs of property division laws (as well as other legal matters related to divorce) and taking part in various activities that serve as a mental outlet, such as hiking or hanging out with friends and loved ones.
