When Divorces Get Ugly in Florida

Divorce, high conflict divorcesThere are plenty of divorce “horror” stories, such as the one that we’ve linked to below. It happened last month in Florida. This one made the news, and alleges that a man was arrested for torturing his wife over divorce and money.  The article tells a story of a couple divorcing, how assets were handled and then how one spouse resorted to violence, leading to his arrest.

Unfortunately, there are many more similar divorce stories, some that make news headlines and many, many others like the one above that don’t. High conflict divorces require a skilled divorce lawyer to settle differences.

Divorce, Tremendous Affect on Emotions

When suddenly, your life changes and life-long plans are threatened, it undoubtedly can have a tremendous affect on a person’s emotions, thus their actions. From petty arguing, to hiding money or assets to taking children. Conflicts during divorce or custody issues can even lead to violence. The truth is, unfortunately divorce has a tendency to bring out the worst in some people. It’s most definitely a highly emotional time, especially when couples have assets and children but high emotions knows no boundaries.  Couples over 50 who are divorcing have had decades to build and accumulate assets, such as the couple in the story we’ve referenced. Many spouses who have been married for many years had a clear picture of what their future would look like. Now, with that future of uncertainty, some can become very fearful which can lead to anger, to depression and anxiety and worse. Divorce has doubled for those over the age of 50 which means more divorcing couples are at risk for high conflict situations.

Choosing the Right Florida Divorce Lawyer and Other Divorce Support

Often times, the wrong advice can escalate an already “tense” situation.  If you and your spouse have decided it’s time to divorce, or, if you suspect your spouse is taking or hiding assets, hiring a Tampa divorce lawyer who can properly advise and represent you is crucial. Seeking out additional resources to help you to transition into single life is equally important for many. This is especially true if you are fearful of what your spouse might do or if you need help learning how to handle finances or doing other things you may not have been accustomed to doing during your marriage.
