When a marriage ends, a lot of different aspects of one’s life are turned upside down. Schedules change, many people spend more or less time with their children and financial considerations are often paramount. For some people, life changes in other significant ways due to the divorce process. For example, many people decide to switch careers, or some have to take on a different job out of necessity. It is important to maneuver through these changes properly and realize the potential way in which a career change could also affect family law matters, from parental relocation for those with kids to alimony and child support obligations.
Some people start a new job due to financial hardships that arise after their marriage ends, while others pursue new opportunities because of newfound freedom as a result of moving on from their marriage. For example, some people are able to move to another state after splitting up with their spouse in order to pursue a more lucrative position. These are just some of the reasons why many people take on new positions (or even switch careers altogether) following their divorce.
Often, leaving a toxic marriage behind changes many aspects of one’s life and inspires them to make many other positive changes. However, it is imperative for people considering such major life changes to ensure that all bases are covered in terms of their legal obligations and the different ways in which their lives will change.
