Signs you may be headed for divorce

One of the hardest decisions married people in New York will ever make is getting divorced. Some couples know when it is time for them to call it quits, others do not. For some partners, the signs of separation are very obvious. In other cases, one partner has arrived at the decision to separate well in advance of their spouse and have yet to muster up the courage to inform them of their decision. Many spouses feel that they are caught unawares with this kind of news. However subtle they may be, there are signs that indicate divorce may be on the horizon.

You divorced your spouse, not your children

You are obviously not the only parent in Garden City who does not have custody of his or her children.

The fact that you divorced your former spouse does not mean you are not a good parent. Further, just because you are the non-custodial parent, certainly does not mean you have no rights.

Is divorce on your agenda for the new year?
