Many people struggle through the holidays in relationships which are challenged and flawed. You are not alone. You may have that feeling inside which tells you it’s time to consider a divorce. You may still be reflecting on what has happened and the impact of your differences with your spouse.
As new years approaches it is normal for our thoughts to turn to the status of our lives, where we are and the things we wish to improve, including our relationships. You may have already had some initial discussions with your spouse. You may even be using the holiday season as a final test to see if you can find that “magic” and the strength to work through your differences.
Divorce doesn’t have to be inevitable. We have had many clients over the years who have decided not to end their marriages and get back together to work things through. The more clearly you understand your options, the easier it is to genuinely weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each option and the impact it will have upon your life and those of your family and surrounding friends.
If you are struggling through the holidays knowing it’s time to consider a divorce you are not alone. Always remember, there is a difference between giving up and reaching a decision based on what is best for yourself and those you love and cherish. You do not have to tolerate dishonesty, emptiness, deception or an argumentative climate. Choosing your path is position of self-respect and power. It truly is your choice.
There is a path through to the future. You may not be able to see it or even imagine it, but we have helped so many clients over our decades of service in Carlsbad, North County and San Diego divorce cases to work through the process and complete it in a position to move forward positively with their lives.
Your joy, peace of mind and the quality of every day are important and worthy. Marriages under duress are often experiencing an imbalance of responsibility and effort. This drains your ability to encounter each day with a positive disposition and treat those closest to you with consistent love and support.
There is a lot to consider. If you have children you will need to work through decisions regarding child custody and parenting time. Finances will change substantially and issues of child support and spousal support must be considered. If you or your spouse own a business or professional practice careful planning must be undertaken to preserve the operational integrity and value of the business going forward.
