Right now, you are sitting in a hotel room, ruminating over what’s happened in your marriage and trying to figure out your next steps.
Perhaps you cheated on your wife with a colleague at work, and you are ruing what’s become of your once loving relationship. Or maybe you left home after a massive fight (again) over a chronic issue, such as an addiction. In either case, you want to make “progress” in your life – whatever that means.
Perhaps it means that you will need to get a divorce. Perhaps it means that you may reconcile and get back together. For now, you need a coherent plant of action.
Hopefully, you heeded the advice in the last blog post and started to document what’s been happening in your marriage. Assuming that the separation may be permanent or (at least enduring), it may behoove you to research California divorce attorneys to get perspective on your case.
Understand that just researching a divorce attorney does not obligate you to use a firm’s services or even to get divorce or stay separated. But you should understand what might be in store for you, if a divorce occurs.
Before you call an attorney, come up with questions you have about the CA divorce process. Do your due diligence. Find a firm that has performed very well for people in very similar situations to the one you’re in right now. Look for a firm that has excellent resources and great values. It may take you a while to winnow down the field, but invest energy into the vetting process. Don’t make a rash decision, but don’t wait too long, either. The quicker you can get clarity about your options, the easier it will be to return to a place of equanimity about your life.
