These days, so many of my clients have former spouses or partners with really difficult personalities. They seem to be being difficult just for the sake of being difficult – or in some effort to get back at their former spouse or partner. It reaches the level of being ridiculous. I think it makes all parties exhausted and frustrated (it certainly makes me exhausted!) – and only increases everyone’s counsel fees. Family law issues are tough, and a reasonable perspective by both parties can work wonders. However, if a reasonable perspective is not possible from your former spouse/partner, the right attorney can help guide you through the difficult approach of your former spouse or partner.
