When Is the Right Time to Get a Divorce?

Posted in Divorce, Family Law on Tuesday, January 12th, 2021

The fact is that only you know if you have reached the point in your marriage that it’s time to seek a divorce. Divorce is as unique as the marriage itself, and every couple who’s considering divorce must address the matter from the perspective of their unique circumstances. There are, however, some basics that can help you thoughtfully consider whether it’s time for you to pursue a divorce. If you have divorce concerns, a dedicated Joliet divorce attorney can help. 

Your Motivation for Divorce

If you are considering a divorce, there’s a reason that this is true, and you shouldn’t sweep this reason under the rug. Just because you’re contemplating a divorce, however, doesn’t mean that divorce is inevitable. In fact, discussing the matter with an accomplished divorce attorney can help you get a better handle on the matter and can help you make a more thoroughly informed decision. 

Far from steering you closer to divorce, an experienced divorce attorney will help you better understand how divorce is likely to affect your future and may be able to provide you with an increased perspective on the matter. Finally, if your motivation for divorce involves domestic violence, it’s a serious matter that you should address immediately (this is one situation that tends to definitively call for divorce).    

Signs that You May Need a Divorce

Deciding to pursue a divorce is a serious decision that should never be taken lightly. Further, marital counseling has the proven ability to help decrease the probability of divorce. As such, no one list of signs should ever persuade you to seek a divorce. 

There are resources that can help you decide whether divorce is right for you or whether it might be possible to save your marriage. If you have a close friend who can keep an objective point of view, open up and discuss your concerns with them. You can also discuss the matter with a therapist or another trusted professional. Ultimately, however, no one knows your marriage better than you and your spouse. Some spouses make this decision together while, in other cases, one spouse is the one advocating for a divorce. 

Some circumstances make it clear that you need a divorce. For example, if you are a victim of domestic violence, you want to take the steps necessary to keep you and your children safe. As divorce attorneys, we are here to help you with issues relating to domestic violence and divorce.
