             Only you have the answer to this question.  For some spouses, it is a question easily answered.  But for others, it is complicated by shifting emotions, intricate finances, and the concern about the overall affect it will have on the family.

            How do you make such a vital decision?  Should you consult with your therapist?  Should you look to your priest, rabbi, or spiritual advisor for guidance?  Perhaps your family and friends have the answer or perhaps they are too entangled in your day-to-day experiences to be suitably objective.  At times, it may feel as though you have nowhere to turn and no one to give you the answers that you so desperately need. 

            A family law attorney cannot tell you what to do or give you advice about your relationship. However, what a family law attorney can do is far more valuable to you in the long run.  You need to know your rights. You need to know what obstacles you would face if you pursued a divorce today as opposed to years from now. Is it worth the financial risk if you give your spouse one more chance?  Maybe you want custody of your children.  You need to know your rights concerning custody and visitation.  The information that you receive from a family law attorney will guide you in the direction that is right for you.
