Is it time for me to get a divorce?

The decision to separate from one's spouse isn't an easy one to make. What will follow will inevitably be life-changing, especially if children are involved. For this reason, spouses who are considering the end of their marriages may wish to ask themselves several important questions before calling an attorney and/or divorce mediator.

Have you tried everything?

Individuals should if he or she has tried hard enough to save the marriage. For some, reading a self-help book or attending couples counseling could be enough for them to know if they have sufficiently tried to resolve their differences. If everything has been tried, and divorce still looks like the best solution, then maybe the time is right.

Have you done your homework?

Another question Tennessee residents should ask is if they have done their homework on divorce and the different options available for ending their marriages. Knowing the costs of those options is also important so that one can find the most cost-effective and affordable solutions for his or her budget and needs.

Are you ready for life after divorce?

Asking yourself if you are ready for "life after divorce" is important as well. After divorce, one will have to fulfill new roles. That role may be a single mother or father. Make sure you're ready for single life before you decide to terminate your marriage.

Ultimately, the only person who can answer the question of timing with regard to a divorce is the person making the decision. Fortunately, once the decision to end your marriage has been made, qualified attorneys and divorce mediator services are available to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
