Do You Really Want a Divorce?

That may seem like a strange question coming from a divorce attorney, but who better to know the consequences of starting legal action than someone who has handled thousands of divorces. The first step isn't finding an attorney; it's finding an attorney who understands what you will be going through, both in the courtroom and emotionally.

Filing for divorce is a big emotional step with long lasting consequences. Most of us, when we are upset, have said things to spouses or significant others that we wish we could take back. Filing for divorce and having your spouse served is not usually something that can be taken back, not emotionally.

It's easy to let our frustrations affect our relationships. If you or your spouse has lost a job, it puts a lot of strain on your family. It's easy to become frustrated and unhappy and want life to change.

Divorce may be the answer, but, before making the decision to file, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Is it a divorce you want, or do you simply want a change in marital dynamics?
  • Has economic strain put distance between you and your spouse and you believe that "threatening" your spouse with divorce will get his/her attention?
  • Think about why you're unhappy, will ending your relationship relieve that unhappiness, or is it something else you want to change?
  • Can you deal with the everyday aspects of life without your spouse? Not just the financial aspects of being a single earner family, but the day-to-day chores. Are you ready and willing to do it all yourself?
  • Are you ready to see your spouse with a new significant other? If you are expecting your spouse to pine away for you sitting at home – think again. If that thought makes you uncomfortable chances are pretty good that you're not ready for a divorce.

If you are ready, however, our legal team is here to help. Contact our firm today to get in touch with an experienced family lawyer who can guide you through this time.
