Whenever you find that one person that makes you happy, you feel that nothing could get in the way of true love. Falling in love is just one of the steps towards a fulfilling relationship. The skills that people must develop to maintain a healthy relationship is key to avoiding a divorce.
A divorce is a termination of the legal duties and responsibilities of a marriage, which is the union of spouses that establishes obligations and rights. If a married couple is struggling to maintain a healthy relationship, and may or may not exhaust any resources to help improve the relationship, the couple may develop reasons for divorce.
Counseling to Avoid Divorce
Prior to filing divorce papers, married couples may seek out professional support through a licensed therapist. Marriage counseling, for example, has shown that it can help couples that are experience unhealthy relationship patterns. However, both parties must be motivated enough to implement change once they start the counseling process.
Relationship Conflicts that lead to Divorce
Sometimes people decide to seek out counseling to help them when times are tough. Relationship conflicts that lead to divorce, which are discussed in counseling, may be related to:
Lack of Communication
Accountability of Responsibilities
If marriage counseling is unsuccessful, couples may end up filing for divorce. At which point, each member of the couple can decide to hire a divorce attorney to help them through the divorce process. Part of the process is to come to a settlement around assets that the couples share, such as their accounts, house, etc. Since a house, out of all assets, tend to have more sentimental value to either member of the couple, some couples may decide to sell the marital property before the divorce.
If there is an existing mortgage on the house, there is a probability that the couple would have to sell the house as neither of them may be able to afford the monthly payments. Even if an individual did earn enough income, if the couple is unable to submit a document to the divorce court judge stating that the couple has come to a final settlement, the judge will make the decision for them.
Selling a House During Divorce
If selling a house during divorce is the only option left, there are two ways to do it:
