In some cases, do people pursue litigation for financial and/or emotional reasons?

I think that some people come in, and they've been hurt and they want somebody to make it right. Family law is an interesting area of law because in most other aspects of law, somebody is going into court because legally they believe they've been wronged. It's emotional issues that generally lead to the divorce – not legal issues. There's a lot of emotion that comes in that's driving the divorce, but it's not a factor in resolving it legally

Partner at McGaughey & Spirito, California family lawyer Erin McGaughey handles complex divorce cases that involve child custody issues, financial issues, and business interests.
