What causes divorce?

All types of things, but generally, most marriages end due to a combination of factors that evolve from a lack of communication, trust issues, and false expectations. Most unhappy marriages don't end overnight, it usually takes work for two people to end a once loving relationship.

A lot of animosities can develop due to incompatibility and personality conflicts that always existed, but were probably overlooked during the halcyon days of the relationship. Continual feelings of frustration can lead to a spouse venting frustration in unhealthy ways, often at the emotional expense of their partner. Emotional manifestations of this stress usually play out in the following ways:

  • Poor Communication – Avoidance
  • Arguments – Often over trivial matters
  • Lack of intimacy

Sometimes, however rare, these issues are related to unknown personality disorder. This may culminate in more severe behaviors such as:

  • Emotional/physical abuse
  • Addiction
  • Serial Infidelity

An abusive relationship, either physical or mental, is certainly grounds for divorce. If you experiencing any type of abuse, or if you are concerned about the well being of your children, it is important that you get to a safe place first. The court system and attorney will be on your side.

"I previously had another lawyer work on my issues with no avail. Once Mr. Albert Joseph Holl got hold of my case, things turned around in a heart beat. He is extremely professional, caring, experienced and was able to explain everything to me in laymen's terms in order to help me and educate me. If it was not for him, I would not have moved on with my case. I will make sure to renew any assistance and or counsel from him again. I strongly recommend Mr. Holl. Thank you. "
