Getting divorced when your partner is pregnant

On Behalf of | Feb 28, 2020 | Divorce |

There are many challenges that people have to work through when they end their marriage, such as financial uncertainty and unfamiliarity with the divorce process in general. For some people, bringing a marriage to an end is especially challenging. For example, those who are expecting a child with their current partner often have a very hard time dealing with the divorce, not only from an emotional perspective but also when it comes to their future obligations (such as child support).

If your partner is pregnant, it is imperative to approach your divorce with care. For starters, you should try to minimize divorce-related complications and disagreements. When couples end their marriage on good terms, other challenges such as bitter disputes over child custody are less likely. However, this is not always the case and many divorces are very hostile. It is imperative to prepare for the different ways you will be impacted by your divorce and the future birth of your child. From paying child support to securing custody or visitation rights, there are many different legal issues that require close review.

When children are involved, divorce is often more challenging. Those who are expecting a child often have an even stronger emotional response to their circumstances. For example, some people become very stressed out and even angry throughout the divorce process, which often leads to additional problems. Please make sure that you work through your divorce carefully and have a thorough understanding of the options that are available. Our section on the end of marriage goes over other issues related to getting a divorce.
