Couple considers divorce for unique reason

Most Texas couples would probably never consider ending their marriage if both spouses are happy in the relationship. When most people consider divorce, it is usually due to a serious issue on which neither spouse can agree. While this may be the norm, it is not always the case. 

One Texas couple finds themselves considering divorce for a very unique reason. They are happily married and very much in love, but they have a daughter with special medical needs. As a married couple, their income exceeds the requirements they would need to meet to qualify for financial assistance. If the parents were to end their marriage, the mother would qualify and the child could receive benefits and assistance from the state. The couple fears that, if they remain married, the child will not have access to the level of care she needs to flourish because they cannot afford the medical care out of pocket.

Not all divorces are contentious. No matter what reason a couple has to end their marriage, there are details that will need to be worked out. Alimony, child support and division of assets are some of the issues divorcing spouses can expect to face. 

On many occasions, it can be helpful to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney. An attorney may be able to help couples as they attempt to end a marriage swiftly and peacefully. Divorce can be an emotional experience, and it can be helpful to have a professional guide people through the difficult process of ending a marriage.
