When a couple gets divorced, it is no secret that a lot of factors are going to change for both spouses. Of course, it all depends on your particular situation. Things will change more dramatically if you have children with your former spouse. A lot of this depends on the custody arrangement that you have. Are you with your children on a daily basis? Or do you only see them every other weekend?
There are a lot of very potential changes and many of them might be difficult for you to process during the adjustment period. It is important for you to abide by the custody arrangement that has been made, as well as any visitation sessions that may occur. You should also make sure to make any child support or spousal support payments that you may be ordered because if you fail to do so, you may face further legal trouble down the road.
Divorce can be an emotional time for both spouses as well as their children. It is important that you are able to try and maintain a cordial relationship with your ex-spouse for the sake of the children.
