The process of dividing assets during a divorce has the potential to cause conflict. This is so much the case that is it quite common for divorcing spouses to accept a financial fight as an inevitability. However, these drawn-out court battles tend to have a negative impact on everyone involved; they are costly, cause high amounts of stress and can even affect the emotional well-being of the children.
Going through a divorce or separation is stressful not only on the couple involved but on their children too. This is why it is very common for separating couples to want to avoid any additional conflict in child custody arrangements.
