Breakdown in Marital Relationship

Learn about trial separation, the timing of divorce and the impact of adultery

The breakdown of the marital relationship is the horse before the divorce cart.

It is hard to imagine a divorce not preceded by a breakdown in a marital relationship.

There are so many questions spouses ask.

  • How do you know there has been a breakdown in the marital relationship?
  • And if there has been, is trial separation a good idea?
  • When is it time for divorce?

And, as of this issue needed to get more complex, how does adultery affect the divorce decision and process?

Fortunately, we can help you navigate this process and answer these questions.
