Seeking advice on changing jobs during a divorce

| Jun 2, 2020 | Divorce |

There may be many individuals in Arizona and elsewhere who have reached a point in life in which a change in career may seem necessary. When facing a divorce, one might feel that seeking out new career opportunities could prove somewhat complex, but it could also be necessary at times. Knowing some of the possible advantages of changing careers while facing a divorce, along with some of the issues that may arise, could help a person better prepare to make an informed decision about the situation.

Studies suggest that there could be numerous potential benefits to seeking a change in career during a divorce. For those with children, a new job could mean a lesser commute or greater ability to be present at necessary functions and appointments. In some cases, a similar change could also come with an increase in income, which could help ease the transition of moving away from a two-person income.

However, there could also be certain potential disadvantages to a similar decision. Experts suggest that attempting to change careers during a divorce could disrupt one’s ability to focus and the subsequent divide in attention could prove detrimental during legal proceedings. Some career changes could also lead to longer work hours or commutes, which could also have an impact on a person’s life in certain scenarios.

Those who consider changing careers during a divorce may also find it helpful to seek insight on how the court may respond to the concept during legal proceedings. Individuals who wish to know what to expect from the process could find it helpful to retain the services of a family law attorney for guidance in making informed choices. An attorney in Arizona can address all a client’s wishes and needs and assist him or her in developing a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome possible concerning the future during legal proceedings.
