The pursuit of happiness is such a fundamental right that our founding fathers included it in the Declaration of Independence. Every human being has the right to live their best life in search of that often elusive state.
That’s why it makes no sense to remain tethered to your spouse in a loveless marriage. All relationships have their ups and downs and nobody is suggesting bailing out at the first rough patch. But you cannot fix an irretrievably broken relationship on your own. And sometimes, even when the other person is also trying to save it, a relationship may just be too damaged to fix.
But what you do need is an exit strategy, preferably one that will leave you poised to embark on a new life where happiness is not so elusive after all. Even the worst marriages can wind up with good divorces that allow both spouses to part ways with what they need to begin anew.
We can help you end your bad marriage with the least amount of acrimony. We encourage all our clients to work toward amicable divorces with their spouses. This is especially important if the two of you will continue to co-parent your children together. A take-no-prisoners approach winds up hurting everyone, most certainly the children who watch mommy and daddy battle it out.
In our community property state, it is entirely possible to walk away from your marriage with sufficient assets to start your newly-single life. We can help you prioritize your wants and needs from the divorce settlement and custody arrangements. Call today to learn how we can help you further your own pursuit of happiness.
