Marriages can last several decades, a few years or even just a few months for some Massachusetts couples. The reality is that marriages often don’t last a lifetime anymore. For those who feel they have outgrown their marriage, it may be in your and your family’s best interests to consider dissolution of your marriage. Divorce can be a necessary part of personal growth that opens doors when others close.
Just because a marriage didn’t last a lifetime doesn’t mean that it wasn’t positive or beneficial in its own way. A person and a family can gather many positive benefits from even the shortest of marriages. Divorce, on the surface, can appear a negative or undesired thing. In our experience at Claudette-Jean Girard Attorney at Law, divorce can be a positive, in that it represents the next chapter for many couples looking to part ways.
Many people are unsure about what to expect or what to do when going through a divorce. Our experienced staff is here to help answer any questions that you have. There are several components to the divorce process that may initially seem daunting, like dividing marital property and child custody. However, oftentimes, these issues can be resolved in a way that satisfies all parties involved in the divorce.
These parties could include you, your spouse and any children shared between you both. Child custody specifically puts the best interests of the child first. Other topics look at multiple factors in order to determine a divorce settlement that is appropriate for personal circumstances. When thinking about divorce, think about how life will look both before, during and after the process is completed.
