Is it worth it to fight a divorce?

You've worked long and hard on your marriage issues, and maybe you feel like you and your spouse are finally making headway on some of your problems. You may feel like the future could be better, or you may not even be aware of any major problems at all, which is why your spouse's request for a divorce can blindside you. At this point, what can you do to stop this from happening? 

It can be complicated to walk through a divorce, but it can be especially complicated when one spouse wants a divorce and the other doesn't. If you do not think your marriage is over, or you are adamant that a divorce is not the right step, is there anything you can do? Sadly, there isn't much you can do to stop this process from moving forward, but there are things you can do to protect your future.

Don't make things harder on yourself 

In reality, there is not a lot you can do to stop a divorce that your spouse initiated and is actively pursuing. If he or she does not want to remain married, there may not be much you can do to convince him or her otherwise. This can be devastating, of course, but it may be time to start looking ahead to how you can build a strong future. It may help to keep the following in mind as you move forward: 

  • If you and your spouse have been living separately for awhile, this could make it more likely that a Florida judge will go ahead and grant a divorce at the request of your spouse.
  • Fighting a divorce that you do not want could lead to strain that may negatively affect your co-parenting relationship that you will have to maintain after the divorce is final.
  • Trying to block a divorce may take more time and money than is beneficial for your situation. It may help to think beyond how you feel in the moment and focus on your future. 

Divorce can be a heartbreaking process, but you do not have to walk through it alone. By seeking the guidance of an experienced divorce attorney, you can have the support you need to emerge from this with confidence and pursue a final order that allows you stability and security for years to come.
