Is Divorce Right for You?

Husband and wife not talking looking like they're considering divorce

Assistance from Our Divorce Lawyer

Contemplating divorce is one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make. No matter what your situation, deciding to separate from your spouse can lead to legal issues that you must be prepared for. Concerns involving your assets, your family, and your children are important to consider, as a divorce can permanently alter your life and your future.

Before Deciding to Divorce

Getting a divorce should be a joint decision made between you and your partner. However, sometimes contentious issues can hinder this process. In these cases, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney to help represent your interests.

If you are asking yourself “is divorce right for me?” consider the following:

  • Is your relationship no longer working for both parties?
  • Have you exhausted all options including counseling?
  • Is marriage causing emotional stress?
  • Do all conversations end in arguments?
  • Are you no longer physically, emotionally, or sexually attracted to each other?
  • Is divorce used as a threat?
  • Are you emotionally ready for this change?

Guiding You Through the Divorce Process

If the decision to divorce is an amicable one, and both you and your spouse have mutually agreed that this is the best choice for you and your family, the proceedings can be much easier. Dividing your assets and personal property become a matter of agreeing to certain terms and filing the correct legal documents with the court.

Should you and your spouse be unable to agree, mediation or court litigation may be the best legal route available for your situation.
