Understanding the Challenges of Family Law Cases

By Jones & Associates Law P.C.

Anyone in Pennsylvania who faces any type of court case is likely going through a stressful time. However, when the court case is about a family law issue, stress combines with emotions to, oftentimes, make a person feel overwhelmed. The family dynamics and emotions involved in family law cases in Pennsylvania are some of the most unique aspects of these types of cases.

If you can go into these cases with a full understanding of the challenges you might face, that can usually help alleviate some of the emotional toll and stress. For example, divorce cases can be difficult because oftentimes they mean not only the end of a marriage, but also a tremendous impact on the life of any children from the marriage. However, if you can focus on the legal issues involved – property division, alimony, child custody and support – you may be able to realize that an efficient resolution to the case is best for all involved.

Probably the most important challenge to overcome in any family law case is understanding your full range of options. Many cases end through direct negotiations between the parties. Others find mediation or other alternative dispute resolution techniques to be helpful. Not very many go all the way to a full-blown trial – but some do.
