Contemplating Divorce: A List May Help

Are you contemplating divorce? If you are like most people in this situation, you may still be uncertain as to whether you actually do want to separate from your partner or not. It is not uncommon to go through a period of ambivalence. However, you can take control by creating lists.

Experts say that creating lists regarding your feelings towards your marriage and divorce can make the decision-process more rational. This allows you to look at your marriage objectively even though emotions are certain to influence your final decision.

Start by looking at your life together and whether there is still loved involved. Then you can open the parameters to include joint friends and family, children, the services that your spouse provides as well as finances.

If a simple list does not help, try assigning numerical values to the lists. Weigh the divorce against the marriage numerically to help you decide emotionally whether to file or work it out with your spouse.

Once you have started to reach your decision, you may wish to consult with a Raleigh family lawyer from our firm who can inform you of your options and provide direction during this tough time. To get help from our team, contact Hopper, Hopper & Mulligan, PLLC today.

My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!...
I came to Kevin with a nasty divorce situation complete with kiddos & an affair (tho not by me!) The whole mess was devastating, emotionally & financially. But in the end, Kevin was money well spent! I have my life back, my kids live with me, & a very nice settlement to top it off. And I must say, it was great seeing my ex on the stand getting caught in his lies! --My mild-mannered lawyer was a pit bull in the courtroom!
