The better prepared one is, the less stressful divorce may be

Most people who are married or have been married in the past would agree that it can be a joyful, rewarding experience and challenging all at once. Sometimes, problems arise that can be overcome. Others situations lead to a complete relationship breakdown. When a spouse in Washington or elsewhere suspects that his or her other half is contemplating filing for divorce, it makes sense to prepare by researching state laws and having a plan in mind, just in case.  

A woman who is divorced herself and often writes about the topic developed a list of telltale signs she says may help concerned spouses recognize the possibility of an impending divorce. She says many spouses stop arguing and that can be a major sign that he or she has simply given up on idea that the marriage can be saved. Especially in situations where spouses tend to bicker a lot, if one spouse suddenly goes silent and stays that way for a long time, it may be because he or she is heading for divorce.  

People thinking about ending their marriages may become overly concerned with finances. If a particular spouse has never really paid much attention to such issues and has struck up a recent interest in all financial details of the marriage, there may be an underlying reason. Other changes in personality may be a sign of an impending divorce as well, such as a spouse who begins to focus a lot of attention on his or her personal appearance, perhaps dropping 10 or more pounds, working out at the gym or buying new clothes.  

Whether a spouse has officially filed for divorce or just seems to be heading in that direction, it's a good idea to be as prepared as possible to avoid negative surprises down the line. To seek guidance, a Washington spouse can request a meeting with an experienced family law attorney. The bottom line is that not every marriage lasts a lifetime, and it's better to arm oneself with as much information and support as possible to avoid navigating the civil justice system alone if and when a divorce occurs.
