The Impact Of Mental Health On Divorce And Custody

Going through a divorce can be difficult and emotionally draining. The end of a committed relationship can bring emotional upheaval. For emotionally stable people, divorce and child custody disputes can be stressful enough to affect mental health. For individuals who already live with depression or other mental health conditions, the process can cause changes in their existing conditions.

Whether you are a parent who lives with mental health conditions or you are a parent who is concerned about your ex-spouse’s ability to care for your children in his or her current mental health state, it’s important to work with a family law attorney who understands the interplay between mental health issues and family law, divorce and custody matters.
