Going through a divorce is an incredibly difficult experience for most people, even if the split is amicable. Both spouses have to face tough decisions at an emotionally vulnerable time. This can end up leading to a breakdown in communication, disagreements, and more.
If you and your soon-to-be-ex have children, the process can be even more complex. If your communication breaks down, it can affect the lives of your children. The well-being of your children should always be your first priority, which is why you need to retain the right St. Paul divorce attorney.
