While divorce is never easy, there are several benefits to dissolving your marriage. If your marriage is on the rocks, contact a determined Suffolk County Divorce Attorney who can help you understand your legal options. Please continue reading to learn about the potential benefits of getting a divorce in New York.

What are some potential advantages of getting a divorce in New York?

Although negative connotations surround the term divorce, there are positive outcomes to ending your marriage. The following include but are not limited to the potential benefits of getting a divorce:

  • Health benefits. Staying in a bad marriage is detrimental to your physical and mental health. Despite the stress of ending your marriage, in the long run, dissolving your marriage will decrease your stress levels as you no longer face constant conflicts and tension.
  • Parenting benefits. Many couples only stay together for their children. However, despite their efforts, they cause more harm than good. Children often feel relieved when their parents split as they no longer have to witness the constant arguing or being put in the middle. Instead, they can enjoy seeing their parents happy again. Divorce can make you a better parent as your energy is no longer focused on your marriage. You can focus on prioritizing your children’s best interests.
  • Financial benefits. Divorce can be a financial burden. However, it can also lead to improving money management skills. Often, those undergoing a divorce have to create a budget and focus on their finances more. This causes them to develop better money habits.
  • Relationship benefits. Don’t allow the end of your marriage to cause you to swear off love and relationships. In most cases, individuals find their relationships after divorce more successful as they can identify and learn from past mistakes.

What are some disadvantages of staying married?

If you are in a loveless marriage, staying married has several cons. This may seem obvious, but if you stay married, you may give up your chance to find a more suited partner. Couples often grow apart in marriages as life and interests constantly change. Don’t allow yourself to live with resentment. If you stay married, you will remain unfulfilled in your relationship, harming your physical and mental health. Ultimately, there are several disadvantages to staying in a loveless marriage. However, the primary disadvantage is that you prevent yourself from exploring new opportunities and finding yourself. Divorce allows you to focus on yourself and grow stronger from past mistakes.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
