One of the most difficult things to go through in life is a death of a marriage, or a divorce.
When you have to think about the impact it has on your children, it is very difficult to take that leap for a divorce. Yet is it best for your children to grow up in 2 households, or to grow up in a toxic environment, teaching them that we need to tolerate unhappiness?
What if you don’t have minor children, and your spouse treats you poorly?
At the time of marriage, your spouse had $30,000 in student loans. The general rule is that the student loan will always be the separate property debt of your spouse, even during a divorce.
However, at some point in your marriage, you both decided to refinance the student loan for a lower interest rate in both of your names. Is it your obligation to continue paying on the loan at the time divorce?
If you are looking for sole physical custody, then the first question to ask is: are the children currently in danger when in the care of the other party?
Often times, a parent answers “yes,” but when you ask that parent what the danger is, he/she has a hard time articulating it. Other times, the answer is related to having a poor co-parenting relationship.
When is money NOT a factor for every decision we make, then we would not care for the word, “affordable.” But, if you are reading this, then more likely than not, you don’t have funds set aside for legal services.
If you have the time (approximately 3-8 hours worth), then you can tap into resources readily available in your county. Since we are primarily based out of San Diego, we’ll provide you some information for resources here.
My spouse and I have been married for 7 months, and it is not working out. We tried marriage counseling, vacationing together, vacationing apart, and even living apart for a couple weeks. This marriage was no-doubt a mistake.
Fortunately, we do not have children to co-parent for the next 18 years. We have no common assets or debts. I am convinced that we didn't enter into this marriage for the right reasons. I am ready to give up on this marriage, and move forward in my life.
Can we annul our marriage based off the short duration?
