Every divorce is different: Some more difficult than others

| Jan 26, 2017 | Divorce

Even though Tennessee spouses enter into their marriages with the idea of “until death do us part,” this may not be the case for every marriage. Indeed, sometimes spouses reach an impasse – a moment when they realize that nothing can be done to repair their relationship – and they decide that they and possibly their children will be healthier and happier if they go their separate ways.

Arriving at the decision to divorce isn’t an easy one. Many couples go to marriage counseling for months or years. Others come to the decision in an instant, after realizing that one spouse has been unfaithful. Still, others just decide that the romance has gone stale and they are better off continuing as friends.

A divorce is a divorce, no matter what; it’s the end of a marriage. However, at the Law Office of Steven C. Girsky, we have come to realize – after representing countless spouses in Tennessee divorce proceedings – that every divorce will have a unique flavor. As such, no two divorces can be handled the same.

Indeed, one might argue that there are 7 billion personality types in this world, and each of those personalities will approach the divorce process in an entirely different way. Some spouses will seek to arrive at a peaceful out-of-court divorce settlement no matter what. Other spouses will want to fight every issue tooth and nail until the case goes to trial. We’d like to say that the “choice is yours,” but we know that you’re not the only player in your divorce.

The question of how quick, peaceful and inexpensive your divorce will be depends on the attitude that both parties bring to the table. At the Law Office of Steven C. Girsky, our attitude is oriented toward peace, all of the time. However, we will always advocate for the protection our clients’ family law rights while seeking a divorce result that is fair, appropriate and in the best interest of our clients and their children.
