Ways to Prepare for a Divorce When Your Spouse has a Substance Abuse Problem

Aimee Pingenot Key | October 31, 2018


Going through a divorce is difficult, even more so when your spouse has a substance or alcohol abuse problem. In this video, Texas divorce attorney Aimee Pingenot discusses how you can prepare yourself. One of the first things that you can do is take an assessment of what is occurring with your spouse on a daily basis. Be sure to write down or even photograph specific details, such as how often he or she is drinking or using illegal substances, how much they are using, and where they are using. Prior to actually filing a lawsuit, one of the best things that you can do is educate yourself on what is occurring in both your spouse’s life and in your life. Seek out local resources, such as counselors, support groups and literature on addiction issues and how to deal with them.
