Child custody can be one of the most challenging aspects of a divorce, not only because a dispute can lead to strong emotions and courtroom stressors but because of the way in which the outcome may impact a child’s life. Moreover, a custody dispute can affect parents in all sorts of ways as well, and in this post, we will look into some career-related concerns involving custody disputes. If you expect that the process of determining how custody will be awarded will be challenging and contentious, it is important to prepare and do what you can to minimize these difficulties.
First of all, when someone is going through tough divorce issues, especially those involving the custody of their kids, they may be very stressed out and have difficulty sleeping at night. This can affect their job performance and may even lead to a demotion, being fired, taking time off work or voluntarily quitting. Furthermore, some parents may have more difficulty while looking for work during or after a custody dispute.
Relocation is another issue that can affect a person’s current job or career opportunities. Many parents move into a new home in another city after their divorce, and some may even move to a different part of the country. In some cases, this can make things easier (such as living closer to one’s job or opening up new job opportunities), while others may have difficulty. If you are struggling with concerns related to a custody dispute and your career, you should carefully explore your options.
