It is often said that there is a thin line between love and hate. Perhaps this explains why so many divorce cases in Jackson County are prone to get messy. People invest a great deal of time, energy and emotion into their marriages, so it may come as little surprise that if and when those relationships fall apart, bitter disputes immediately ensue. All of the positive emotion that one feels for a partner may quickly be pushed over to the other side of the proverbial line, leading to complicated confrontations that can often introduce new complexities into a divorce case.
This fact was on full display in the case of an Ohio couple. What supposedly started out as a discussion over mutual property quickly devolved into an incident which devolved to the point of requiring police intervention. When law enforcement officials arrived on the scene, the woman involved began to get hostile and soon had to be restrained. Yet as officers were working to obtain her cooperation, the man involved in the dispute suddenly pulled a gun out. While he eventually did surrender the weapon, his hostile behavior continued to the point of officers having to threaten him with the use of pepper spray.
The ultimate outcome of the counter was the both the man and woman ended up facing multiple charges. One can only wonder how the presence of these charges might eventually effect their divorce proceedings. Maintaining a calm demeanor during divorce proceedings is certainly easier said than done, yet those working through such proceedings certainly do not want their actions to handicap their potential of securing a favorable outcome. Earning such an outcome may be much easier if one has an experienced attorney to rely on.
