During divorce don't neglect your mental health

The end of a marriage or common-law relationship brings with it many changes. In the course of finalizing the split there are many matters that need to be addressed. While financial matters are often front and center, when children are involved, matters related to them such as custody and support are also important. Though the focus during a split is usually on matters of this nature, the parties to a split should be aware of other things as well such as their mental health.

If, for some reason, the process if not successful, a case may still be arbitrated or litigated.
