Can't Decide To File Divorce?

If you cannot decide whether to file for divorce, you should likely meet with both a psychologist as well as an attorney. If you are trying to decide, it is likely that your spouse is trying to decide as well.  It is important to know your legal rights prior to the beginning of a divorce.  For example: Are you required to move out?  When do you begin paying child support?  Who is responsible for the mortgage and other household expenses? and When do I get to visit my children? Divorce is one of the most difficult times that anyone will go through in their lifetime.  It is the ending of a relationship and most people struggle with and fear the concept of how their life will change.  Most mental health professionals opine that when divorcing people go through the 5 stages of grief similarly to those who lose a loved one.  Those five stages of grief include:  (1) Denial; (2) Anger; (3) Bargaining; (4) Depression; and (5) Acceptance.   Those struggling with the decision often make a list of pros and cons of divorce.  many also talk to trusted friends and confidants to help aid in the decision.  While this may prove helpful, in matters of emotion, the laundry list is just that and friends try to be supportive based on the information you give to them.  A psychologist can help you understand the underlying reasons for your unhappiness and the best resolution.  It may include counseling, medication, or modifications within your marriage instead of divorce. I have learned over my 20 years in practice that involving a good psychologist will often lead to a much better experience and more amicable divorce or dissolution.  I often will refer clients and potential clients to speak with a mental health professional. If you need to discuss the state of your marriage as well as understand your legal rights in the event of a divorce, consult with an experienced attorney.  With experience comes the history of dealing with numerous people who have gone through similar circumstances.  For a consultation in Northern Kentucky, call Michael Bouldin at 859-581-6453 or email at [email protected]
