Depression over a child custody dispute

At our law firm, we know that family law issues are often extremely sensitive from an emotional point of view. Financial matters and major life changes are some of the hurdles that people work through prior to filing a divorce and following the divorce process. Moreover, those which involve one’s kids can be particularly intense, especially when it comes to child custody. Parents may become depressed due to an unfavorable outcome regarding a custody case, or they could feel burdened with intense anxiety leading up to a custody case.

While parents may not be able to completely eliminate negative feelings during a custody dispute (which are, after all, very natural), there are a variety of ways in which a parent may be able to make things easier during this tough time. Moreover, taking these steps may actually help a parent put their best foot forward with respect to the case. For starters, having a comprehensive understanding of the custody process, such as the different factors that are reviewed when determining which outcome would serve a child’s best interests, can offer confidence and maybe even some peace of mind. Parents who are struggling with these negative emotions may also benefit from healthy activities that allow them to release some tension and regain their focus, such as exercise, hiking, etc.

Some parents may struggle with depression following an unfavorable custody evaluation, but there may be options on the table. For example, a parent may be able to pursue visitation rights which they believe they deserve, allowing them to spend time with their child.
