My Husband Is Filing For Divorce, Can The Judge Mandate Therapy Before We Start The Divorce Process?
Today’s question comes to us from Tracy today and she wants to know her husband is filing for divorce, and she really thinks that they have an opportunity to fix their marriage if they go to couples therapy. She wants to know if the judge can award that, can order that and mandate that they go to therapy before they finalize or start a divorce.
Her husband is wanting a divorce, she feels that her husband is really not certain about this divorce and feels like they probably have a chance to fix their marriage if they go to couple’s therapy. The problem is that the husband is not interested in going to couples therapy and she wants to know can the judge order them to go to therapy together.
Unfortunately, Tracy, the judge cannot make those orders. The judge can, after a divorce has been filed maybe send you both to mediation to see if you can fix your issues there and give you an opportunity to talk about the marriage and maybe go and agree to go to therapy together. But the judge cannot order you to go to a couple’s therapy as part of a way to avoid getting the divorce.
I wish I had better news for you, but maybe have family members talk to him, maybe have a pastor talk to him, a priest talk to him, maybe you guys can fix it before he files for divorce. But unfortunately, the court is not the place for you to get that kind of help requesting and mandating that your husband try couples therapy before filing for divorce.
