Divorce: Beginning the end

Not all Texas divorces are a mutual decision, in fact most are not. According to one therapist, the divorce-initiating spouse has often thought long and hard about the decision to end the marriage for a very long time. Typically, the other spouse desires to make the relationship work, but by the time the initiating spouse announces that they want a divorce, the initiating spouse has already checked out and there is often little hope of salvaging the union.

What should a spouse that has just been informed that their partner no longer wants to continue with their marriage do? The honest answer is that there is no easy solution. However, there are steps that a heart-broken spouse can take to rebuild their life.

The first step is recognizing that a continued resistance in the face of a marriage that does not appear to be salvageable will deplete assets. Not only could prolonged litigation be harmful for any children involved, but it will leave both parties with less means to rebuild their separate lives.

Another key step may be finding an advocate. When an individual in Texas or elsewhere is going through the emotionally tumultuous time of a divorce, it is important to seek out representation that will be sensitive to their needs. Representation is available that understands the individual's situation, and through personal attention and support can guide the individual to a successful settlement.

While divorce is the end of a marriage, it is also the start of a new beginning.
