Divorce Risk Analysis

After the husband/wife sends a legal notice for divorce to his/her counterpart, there are numerous high-end risks that may be irreparable in the future. If the spouse replies to the notice in affirmation or the court grants divorce, the following may happen

·         The spouses invite social trauma and lowered social status for the whole family;

·         Husband may be required to pay maintenance for lifetime;

·         Half of the total property of husband would go to wife;

·         Poverty (for the spouse who is not financially sound);

·         Loneliness and Depression;

·         Question as to who will get the custody of children would be a mind-boggling issue;

·         Remarriage is quite difficult and cumbersome in Indian society. Even if the spouse remarries, the step-father or step-mother may not be welcoming for the children;

·         One study also suggests that children of divorced parents consider divorce as the perfect solution to marital problems;

·         Studies have found that children with divorced parents show lower levels of success at schools, poorer and deranged behaviour, more number of emotional problems, low self-esteem, difficulties in making social relationships, etc.
