Remaining aware of divorce impacts may help during proceedings

Anyone who goes through the end of a marriage likely wants the legal proceedings to move forward as quickly as possible. However, each case is different. Though certain aspects of the divorce process may move slowly for various reasons, there are some actions that divorcing New York residents could take in hopes of making their proceedings go as smoothly as possible.

Alcohol consumption, attractiveness may increase divorce risk

There are many factors that could contribute to individuals choosing to end their marriages. Some of these conditions are generally well known, such as having parents who divorced, but there are also other details that could have a bigger impact on relationships than some New York residents may realize. As a result, they could end up facing the potential for divorce.

Do genetics contribute to divorce?

Genetics and environment make a person who he or she is. A recent study suggested, however, that genetics trumps environment when it comes to divorce. According to the study, those in New York or elsewhere who choose to end their marriages may do so because they are hardwired to do so.

Could drug testing play a role in child custody proceedings?

Having an alcohol or drug abuse problem can often cause many hardships in a New York resident's life. When it comes to child custody, the court often views these issues harshly because of the possible negative impacts the children involved could face. As a result, one parent could end up seeing the children much less often than he or she had hoped.

Alimony, other divorce settlement outcomes may impact finances

Staying on top of finances is important during any stage of life. An emergency or considerable life change could occur, and without the proper financial knowledge, individuals may feel at a loss. When it comes to divorce, understanding how settlement terms and other outcomes could impact future finances may be vital.
