There is no easy answer to the question, "should I get a divorce?" Every marriage is unique, and every divorce is challenging. Therefore, there are many issues to consider to determine if getting a divorce is right for you. If you do decide to separate, one of the St. Louis divorce lawyers at the Kallen Law Firm, LLC can help you navigate the challenges of separation and divorce.
If you are now suffering, or you have suffered, from emotional or physical abuse, there is no time like the present to move on with your life and file for divorce. If your spouse has been abusive there are issues other than getting a divorce that must be addressed to help you and your children leave safely.
You should know that in most cases, leaving an abusive partner will lead to an increase in abuse and danger for the abused spouse. For this reason, if there has been ANY physical abuse, or if there has been emotional abuse and you fear it may escalate to physical abuse, it is important to involve the police and the courts as soon as possible to help ensure your safety and the safety of your children.
If you are a victim of domestic abuse, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 for help before you make any moves to leave your partner.
