Our law office knows that people have a particularly hard time during their divorce for a host of reasons, from the financial strain they are experiencing to emotional challenges. At the law offices of Daniel W. Uhlfelder, P.A., we also realize that many people in Florida struggle with family law matters during this time of the year as a result of having the flu. There are a lot of different ways that the flu affects someone who is working through legal hurdles related to their divorce or even dealing with post-divorce family law issues such as custody or child support.

We recognize the many ways in which the flu (or some other type of illness) interferes with a divorce or some legal issue related to the end of a marriage. When someone is struggling with a serious illness, they likely do not have as much energy to devote to legal considerations and their symptoms will make life difficult in a host of ways. Sleeping, concentrating on legal matters, attending court hearings and finding time to review legal options become much harder in the midst of a serious illness.

If you are currently struggling with the flu during your divorce, or you come down with the flu or some other illness later in the process, it is important to seek medical attention and do your best to prevent your symptoms from interfering with your case. Critical family law topics, such as child custody, require a lot of attention and many different legal factors need review. Our law firm covers a number of other topics regarding family law on our blog.
