The one decision a Divorce Lawyer cannot help you make is deciding if your marriage is worth saving, but before you proceed with a divorce, you must have an answer to that question. The divorce laws in Massachusetts require your marriage be beyond repair with no hope of a reconciliation. There is no room for any doubt whatsoever. If there is even the slightest doubt to breaking up the marriage, then you cannot file for divorce. The marriage is irrevocably broken when you begin the divorce process.
When Children Are Involved
Having children complicate matters because as a parent you feel as though you must make sacrifices for them, but that doesn't include sacrificing your own happiness for the child's sake. Staying together for the children isn't always the best thing to do. Your child becomes more damaged by a marriage filled with hostility and regret than by the divorce. He or she will experience more trauma from living in a negative environment. Without love between the parents, the parenting abilities aren't the same, and your child will notice how you feel. How can your child be happy if you are not?
