I want to get a divorce – but I am scared

A women who wants a divorce but is scared to go through with it

For some people, it can be difficult to end a relationship, even if it is causing unhappiness or if there are more significant concerns. Even a troubled relationship can give a sense of stability that isn’t easy to abandon.

Taking the steps to get a divorce certainly come with their fair share of emotional stress, but the option of working together with a family lawyer to end the marriage exists as a means of helping you to rediscover yourself and get a fresh start.

Protecting yourself

Some divorces happen simply because a couple falls out of love. And then there are some that unfortunately happen because one partner acts in an aggressive or abusive manner.

For your own wellbeing, it is important to escape a situation where your partner has been physically, verbally or mentally abusive. You can work together with your lawyer or the local law enforcement to make sure that you are protected after you make your decision to get a divorce.

Weigh your choices

In a relationship where you and your partner simply no longer love one another and want to go in separate directions, you need to evaluate the repercussions of applying for a divorce. The cost of creating a second household needs to be considered for example, as does the schooling for any children.

Ultimately, if you feel like you are in an unhappy situation that would be improved by getting a divorce, you need to recognize that a support structure exists to help you terminate the marriage.

Talk with a family lawyer
