Reasons for filing a divorce

There are many reasons for divorce. The couples may have lived apart for so long that they no longer share a life together; no common things between them as time passed and they just need divorce papers to formalize their situation.  This is one of the easiest and simplest grounds for a divorce. In Canada, the law requires a proof that shows that the couple is no longer living together for at least a year. The only thing required to prove is that the serration was due to marital conflict or differences. They should already be living apart for a year before the divorce was filed, and not after.

Another reason is adultery. Proof of an extra-marital affair should be presented. One other reason is the presence of mental or physical cruelty or abuse. There should be proof that such situation exists. For both these latter reasons, the one-year waiting period is not necessary before a divorce  can be filed.

Why hire Divorce Lawyers?

A divorce can be costly. Not just the lawyer fees, but the ones that goes to each of the couple. Technically, there are only 3 figures to consider: (1) net worth before the marriage, (2) net worth during the marriage, and (3) the net worth at the time of divorce. The computation alone can be messy, especially about the 2nd and 3rd figures. This does not include the assets- the house(s), car(s), and even down to the coffee table. The service of a lawyer- a good one, is needed to make this part a little bit easier. Negotiations can be left to the skills of the lawyer, so make sure to get the best one.

Another thing issue is about the eligibility of the partners for support. This can be messy and tricky, too. Some just don’t want to give support for varied reason, valid or otherwise. A lawyer can help the divorce seeker maneuver the negotiations, one who will look out for the benefit of the client. Some divorces can get ugly and complicated. A good lawyer, at least, can help not only with the legal aspect, but provide support as well. Support in terms of a caring shoulder to pour out the frustrations over the failed marriage and the divorce, or through contacts that may help with whatever trouble that may arise.

Money will always be an issue in a divorce proceeding. Some lawyers would charge different rates, depending on the involved issues in the divorce. And then, in worse situations, the hired lawyer may be clueless when the divorce turns out to be more complicated. The divorce seeker is left without any ideas on what steps to take next.

The entire process can be draining physically, mentally and emotionally, not to discount the financial drain it may take. So it is important to look for lawyers, like Divorce Lawyers in Edmonton services.
