October 2019 – Mental Health and Family Law

A divorce or custody dispute can be an extremely difficult process to go through in the best of circumstances. This process can also be a horrible strain on the mental health of everybody involved. Unfortunately, mental health issues are a growing concern in our country. According to the National Institute of Mental Health nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness. This means it is highly likely that you, your spouse or your children may be dealing with this, on top of dealing with the difficulty of the divorce itself.

Mental health issues can complicate communication and cooperation with your spouse and children. Depression, drug and alcohol abuse and other mental health disorders are common issues that the team at Owens & Perkins and our clients have to deal with. Having attorneys on your side experienced in dealing with such matters can help anticipate and combat any complications issues that may arise in your case as result of mental health concerns.
