Improved Essays
Descriptions The situation I have been dealing with in the past and the present, is my parent’s divorce, which happened in December of 2013. The situation all began from my point of view when my dad had found on my mom’s phone messages from her to another guy. I was not living at home when this occurred, but my sister was and had told me, “dad left the house and I have no idea where he is.” My dad had told my mom, “to get a lawyer.” Because my dad had left the house and was staying at his sister’s house for several months, my mom was staying at the house on the farm with the two dogs.

Thinking about it now I feel it was the best solution, because my mom and dad are both happy even though they are not together anymore. The only other outcome I can see what could of came from this conflict was for my parents to get back together after taking a break from each other.

Dividing up my parent’s assets was one of the major obstacles which needed to happen before anything could happen. There was also the obstacle of waiting on emails between the two lawyers, which was very time
