Northport, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2014
In a new website article, Long Island divorce lawyer David Badanes Esq. advises couples against waiting to file for divorce.
“Waiting to file for a divorce may not be the best decision, especially if children are involved,” according to Mr. Badanes. “Many people believe that it’s beneficial to stay together for the sake of the children. In reality, this often does more harm than good.”
Children of parents, who stay together for the sake of the children may experience problems in their adult relationships, according to experts.
There are other reasons why prolonging a divorce may not be the right choice. For instance, it could be a costly mistake. Many couples are not aware that all debts they accumulate prior to a divorce is considered marital debt.
In the event of a divorce, each spouse is potentially responsible for 50 percent of the marital debt, according to Suffolk County divorce lawyer David Badanes Esq.. Even if you are not a co-signer of a loan or on a credit card account, you are still potentially responsible for the debt.
“If your husband or wife goes on an enormous spending spree, you may be obligated to pay half of the bill,” says Mr. Badanes.
Prolonging a divorce may sound like a wise decision, but, it can have a negative impact on a child’s future and it can lead to financial losses. If divorce is on your mind, contact top rated Long Island divorce attorneys at (631) 239-1702 or visit dbnylaw(dot)com.
