Reasons to Consider Divorce

Often, when one spouse serves divorce papers on the other, it doesn't come as a major surprise. Filing for a fault-based or no fault divorce in Cumming usually occurs as a result of significant discontent or after years of arguments. If divorce is beginning to seem more appealing to you than staying married, you can consult a divorce attorney about your options before you make your final decision.


Domestic Violence

If the safety of you or your child is threatened or has already been harmed, it's important to get legal help right away. A divorce attorney can help you obtain a protective order, which would prevent the abuser from coming near you or your child. A family attorney can help you understand the likely child custody outcome in divorce cases that involve domestic violence.

Children's Wellbeing

It's commonly thought that even if both spouses are unhappy with the marriage, they should stay together for the sake of the kids. But children can be harmed by living in an environment characterized by frequent arguments, emotional tension, and ill will. Children readily pick up on the stress of their parents and this may cause physical problems, emotional challenges, poor academic progress, and behavioral problems in children. If this applies to your situation, then divorce may actually be healthier for your children in the long run.


Infidelity or an affair is a common reason for divorce. Infidelity can cause anger, jealousy, and resentment. If you have discovered that your spouse has been unfaithful, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to forgive him or her and move forward from the problem. On the other hand, if you were the spouse who committed infidelity, you may realize that the incident was really a symptom of your unhappiness with the marriage. Ultimately if an affair is causing you to consider a divorce, a divorce attorney can walk you through the implication of that conduct in your case.
