From adultery to lack of communication, there are a number of reasons why marriages fall apart. No matter the reason why you are debating ending your marriage, however, it is common to be uncertain about how to proceed. If you feel uncertain or afraid about how you will navigate this difficult time, it is important to realize that you are not the only person who has faced the end of a marriage. 

If you are like many people who have successfully navigated this situation, you are likely waiting for some event to occur. You are not alone in this, however. An experienced and compassionate divorce attorney can help guide you through the process of deciding whether divorce is right for you and your family. 

The following will discuss some of the important steps that you should follow when considering ending your marriage.

Decide if it is Time to End Your Marriage

Instead of waiting to end your marriage, now might be the time to end your relationship. To perform a self inventory about how you feel about your marriage, it is important to ask yourself a number of questions, which include:

  • How often and why you think about divorcing your spouse?
  • Are you still in love with your spouse?
  • What traits you dislike in your spouse?
  • What you would do if you were single again?
  • Does your marriage meet your expectations?
  • Are you and your children happy?

After answering these questions, if you determine that your marriage is not working or that you are staying married for the wrong reasons, it might be time to end the marriage. 

If you are staying married simply to avoid divorce, it helps to understand that there are many less negative connotations associated with divorce and there is little reason why you should remain married if you are not happy. 

Despite this, some people still hesitate to end a marriage because they feel overwhelmed by divorce, are afraid of what will happen to their children, or want to make the “perfect” decision when ending a marriage.

Gather the Necessary Financial Paperwork

Before breaking plans of a divorce to your spouse, gather all of your financial documents and make copies. Once your spouse learns about your plans, it can be much more difficult to gather this paperwork. While this does not mean that a spouse will actively hide documents, it can be less comfortable to ask for this information.
