Are You Trying to Decide Whether to Save Your Marriage, or Get Divorced?

Making the decision to get divorced is a major life event. It can take some people years to come to a place where they’re ready to end their marriages, even if those relationships have been unhappy for a long time. But knowing you want out doesn’t necessarily make the process any easier. Many people deal with guilt, feelings of failure, and fear of what their future will look like.

There are a lot of questions, and often very few answers. Will walking away from an unfulfilling relationship make you happier? Or simply solve one set of problems and replace them with another? Will you find someone else here around Lansing to be happy with? Will you be able to afford living on your own? And what about your kids – what will the impact be on their lives? It’s a hard decision to make, and the pressure to decide can feel overwhelming.

So what do you do? How do you decide what’s right for you?

You go online, searching for answers. You Google divorce in Ingham County or family law attorneys in Eaton County. You’re reading blogs about others who’ve gone through the process ofdivorce or separation before, and scan social media looking for people you know who’ve ended their marriages. What do their lives look like now? Do they seem happier? How did they get through the process? 

The reality is that only you can decide if your marriage is worth saving, or if you’re ready to move on. No amount of internet searches and discussing it with friends and loved ones is going to answer that question for you.You alone must make the choice. However, sometimes the choice is easier to make when you have clear answers about what to expect from the divorce process, and what sort of options are available to you in the future. And that’s where your divorce attorney comes in…

How do you find the right divorce attorney to help you?

You search for divorce attorneys in the Lansing, Clinton County and Charlotte area, reading reviews and trying to wade through all the information available. Google knows everything, right? It’s overwhelming, and you don’t know which family law attorney to choose. There are so many options, and so many attorneys promoting themselves and making promises they may not be able to keep. Which one is the right one? Who should you choose?

The best way to decide if an attorney is a good match for you is to meet them. We understand that this is hard to do during Covid, while in person meetings are so much more restricted and everyone is relying heavily on email, phone calls and Zoom meetings, but you should still try to get a feel for the attorney you’re thinking about hiring before you hire them. And a free consultation is the best way to do that.

It’s important to know that the simple act of speaking with a divorce attorney doesn’t mean you have to end your marriage.
