Some couples divorce following a single event that is unacceptable to one spouse, such as adultery or domestic violence. However, for most people, the idea of divorce arises gradually. Some spouses might not even realize that the other is considering divorce until they file a case.
It is preferable to know when a divorce might be on the horizon so you can prepare. If you notice any signs of a possible divorce, you should consult with a Huntington Beach divorce attorney as soon as possible.
Some signs that you or your spouse might file for divorce in the near future include:
- Your communication has devolved, and you cannot seem to improve it
- You feel a growing distance between you
- You and your spouse have different goals and priorities for the future
Sometimes, your spouse files a divorce petition, and when you don’t expect it. No matter what is signaling to you that a divorce case can be in your future, it is important to take action to protect your rights.
First, you should speak with a divorce lawyer right away – even if you aren’t completely certain that you are getting a divorce. A lawyer can tell you what steps to take in anticipation of a possible divorce, including assessing all your financial accounts, debts, property, and other assets. You should also determine whether you might separate while a divorce is pending and how that will impact you financially.
