Is It Time to End Your Marriage?

Many times people stay in marriages for a variety of reasons:

  • Children
  • Comfort
  • Lack of options
  • Cannot locate their spouse
  • Domestic violence/fear

However, it truly is no way to live. The only person who knows if it is time to move on is you.

Reasons You May Want a Divorce

Whether you simply know the marriage is over, whether it is the most stressful times of year-the Holidays, whether your spouse has committed adultery, abused you, a victim of domestic violence, if your family situation is not working, every day is stressful. Whether it is because of your in-laws, your expectations or the fact that you no longer want to be in the situation, the stress builds up. You may be in the early stages of contemplating a divorce, you may have been served with divorce or dissolution of marriage papers in New Jersey or you may be focusing on more specific issues or concerns.
