Pushing off your divorce because of an illness

Couples facing a divorce may be going through a number of hurdles that are unique to their personal situation, from challenges involving children or other family members to financial hardship. Moreover, there are unique circumstances that can make it even tougher for someone to split up with their spouse, such as a serious illness. If you are struggling with any type of serious illness or health problem, such as a cancer diagnosis, you may come to the conclusion that it is best to push off your divorce for now.

In some cases, this can be the right move. However, there are also times when it can be beneficial to move forward with a divorce in the midst of other challenges, including health problems. For example, some people may be able to find mental relief and reduce their day-to-day stress levels by finalizing their divorce and moving on in life. However, it is best for you to carefully analyze your own circumstances and decide which move is best for you.

Our law office fully realizes the different strains that a serious illness can place on someone‚Äôs life. Those who are struggling with an illness may feel too tired or depressed to deal with legal issues, or they may be in too much pain to go through courtroom challenges. If this is something you are facing on a personal level, it may be best to prepare for your divorce and deal with this major life change when you will be in a better position.
