Signs Your Spouse is Planning a Divorce

That little voice in the back of your mind tells you that something isn't right.  You suspect your spouse is unhappier than usual and may be thinking about calling it quits.  Perhaps you don't want to confirm your worst fears; however, there are definitely warning signs that your spouse is planning a divorce.  The following clues are adapted from an article originally appearing on the website of the Austin, Texas firm of Noelke English Maples St. Leger Blair, L.L.P.

Thoughtful decisions should be made throughout the divorce process

Starting a marriage is often a joyful experience. People usually picture spending the rest of their lives with their partner, traveling the world and sharing romantic dinners. However, after some time, many people find that they can't spend the rest of their lives with their partner after all. Sadly, a divorce can be a painful experience, especially when it was prompted by intense feelings of sadness, anger or betrayal.

Grandparents often play a significant role in a child's life

The relationship between a grandparent and a grandchild is a special one. In New Mexico, grandparents may be granted visitation during or after a divorce. In some instances, grandparents can become a more permanent part of a child's life.

Settling child custody matters can be emotional for parents

Settling child custody matters can be one of the most difficult parts of a divorce. That's because parents only want what is best for their children. However, two parents may have different ideas about what is in their child's best interests.

Divorce mediation may be a good option for those divorcing later in life

A lot of people assume that a divorce has to be a drawn out battle. However, it doesn't always have to be that way. Couples looking to solve their differences in an amicable manner may find that divorce mediation is best for them.
