What if your divorce or child custody battle lingers on, not just for several months or years but for a decade or longer? How could you live a happy, fulfilled life if you were constantly being called into court? How could you regain equilibrium in your career, finances and relationships, if you never gain closure about your current relationship?
This fear is pretty terrifying. Examples of this worst case scenario abound in the news. Consider the epic divorce battle between actor Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, which persisted for over a decade and led to constant acrimony and infighting, especially over the fate of their daughter.
Some divorces DO take a long time to process through the court system – particularly when they involve substantial assets, complex family dynamics and stubborn personalities. But the odds of your personal divorce stretching into epic territory are very low.
However, even if this does happen, you can still live your life and rebuild your relationships and career. Alec Baldwin, for instance, managed to produce some pretty brilliant work while struggling with his epic divorce – look at the success of the show 30 Rock, for instance.
Lengthy divorces make people agitated and frustrated because the uncertainty, in and of itself, stresses people out perpetually. However, with the proper legal strategy, you can manage legal proceedings.
