There is usually a sense of relief on the part of both spouses once the ink finally dries on their divorce decree. That's because even though either side may not be completely satisfied with how things turned out, they are nevertheless finally free to put the past behind them and embark on a new chapter of their life.
More significantly, they can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their children are finally relieved of the stress brought on by the split and able to start adjusting to their new post-divorce reality.
As much as parents want to believe that the stress brought on by their divorce will end for both them and their children once their divorce is finalized, the reality is that when life circumstances change, so too will the terms of the divorce.
Consider the tumult that can arise when the parent awarded primary physical custody is presented with an offer for a truly great employment opportunity across the state -- or even across the nation.
If the parent decides that the job offer is too good to pass up, they will have to seek permission from the Florida courts to make the move with their child, something to which their former spouse might strenuously object.
