Get the Help You Need Advice from a Compassionate Divorce Attorney

When you get married to the love of your life, you don't plan to get a divorce a few years after. Before you decided to say ‘I do’ you must have felt like that person was the one for you. However, due to imperfections and irreconcilable differences, you may now feel like it's time to end your marriage with your partner. At this point, different thoughts and emotions will be running through your head, and you may not be thinking clearly. All you'll want to do is to call a divorce attorney in Tacoma to start the process of dissolving your marriage. Hold on, don't place that call yet. Just like a marriage, divorce is a big step that will change your life forever.

3 Questions You Should Answer Before You Contact A Divorce Attorney In Tacoma

1) Have I Considered My Role In The Challenges We Are Facing?

Whether you like to admit it or not, no one is perfect, and no matter how terrible your partner is, there is still a possibility that you have contributed, consciously or subconsciously, to the challenges your both are facing. Even though you are not responsible for your partner's behavior, you are solely responsible for yours. Critically analyzing your role in the problem will help you confirm if you want a divorce or you want to work on your marriage.

2) Is The Marriage Worth Another Shot?

After you have determined your role in the challenges you and your partner face, it is important that you find out if you are still willing to give the marriage another shot. It's one thing for your marriage to be unhappy and it's another thing for it to be unsalvageable. If it is unhappy and both of you are willing to work together, you can restore the joy you once had. If, on the other hand, it is unsalvageable, the best thing to do is call a divorce attorney in Tacoma.

3) Do I Want To End My Marriage Because I Met Someone Else?

Seeking a divorce because you met someone new might be catastrophic. Having another person in the picture will make it difficult for you to sort out your feelings. Everything your partner says or does will irritate you, and the new person will appear like the savior. You'll be tempted to end your marriage quickly so you can move on to this new person. But how long do you think it will take before you see all the imperfections of the new person? Comparing a new relationship to your marriage is a big mistake. If you're not sure how you feel, give yourself some space from your marriage and the new person. 

Reflecting on yourself and other parties involved will help you determine what to do next. You may find out that you still love your partner at the end of the day.

If after you have considered these three questions you are certain that you want to end your marriage, take the next step and contact a divorce attorney. Remember that your happiness is what matters the most. So, make a decision that will secure your happiness.
