Over the years as divorce attorneys, we have encountered many individuals who still feel love and affection for their spouse but are facing what they believe to be insurmountable obstacles to staying in the marriage. This may be the case when addiction or infidelity is an issue or when parenting styles are at odds. Other factors that can put a strain on a marriage include differences in financial priorities or having a child or teen with behavioral problems.
Family Preservation Law may be right for you
We have found that aside from serious affairs or complete incompatibility most marital issues can be resolved and the family reunified, if that is the desire of both parties.
