One of the most harmful things that spouses can do to themselves at the end of their marriage is to fall into the trap of believing misconceptions about what their single life might look like. In reality, no one knows what the future holds, which underscores how futile it is to obsessively worry about one's post-divorce life. A far better investment of that time would be to turn one's attention to the legal aspects of his or her Alabama divorce.
When parents are unable to see eye to eye concerning the care and custody of their shared child, things can quickly get out of hand. Child custody is an emotional state of affairs, and parents in Alabama and across the nation struggle to come to terms with having to share time with a former spouse or partner. It is easy to make child custody decisions that are based on emotion rather than reason, but doing so can have long-term detrimental effects to a parent's child custody rights.
