Addiction and Divorce

A marriage can fall apart for many reasons, but addiction is a particularly serious problem that may lead to a divorce. When one spouse suffers from a serious addiction, whether physical or psychological, that individual may fail to pay attention to the health of his or her marriage or family. Over time, this can lead one or both couples to file for divorce.

If you are interested in pursuing a divorce, you need a caring and experienced divorce attorney working with you. To learn what we can do to help, contact the Oceanside divorce lawyers of Fischer & Van Thiel, LLP, today by calling (760) 621-7101.

Addiction Problems in a Marriage

Addiction is a very powerful force that can drastically change how a person thinks and behaves. Instead of making reasonable decisions that show care for a spouse and love for a family, a person may think only about themselves and how they can feed their addiction. As a result, they may neglect their spouse and their family. Additionally, some addictions can seriously endanger the financial and emotional health of a family.

Some addictions that can contribute to serious marital problems include:

  • Drug and alcohol addiction
  • Work addiction
  • Gambling addiction
  • Other psychological addictions

If your marriage has been negatively affected by addition, an experienced divorce attorney can help you evaluate the options available to you at this time.
