In California, fifty percent of all marriages end in a divorce – not very good odds for some. All couples go through difficult times, but when do you know if divorce is right for you?
When considering divorce, first contact a marriage counselor or other professional person for help in fixing your marriage, if possible. Counselors are trained to determine if divorce is the option for you and your spouse. The counselor will be able to help you work through your feelings and emotions.
Next, you may consider going to a support group. Meeting with people who have gone through a divorce can help you decide if that is best for you. Discuss your feelings and thoughts with friends and family. They can provide insight to your situation. Finally, sit down with your spouse – talk about what is troubling you, why you are so unhappy. Communication is one of the most important aspects in a relationship – without it you have nothing.
If you find you have done everything possible to help your marriage, but you still feel divorce is the best option, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will guide you through this difficult process, protecting your rights all the way.
