Can anybody out there tell me if there are any other legal options to divorce for a mentally sick spouse that provides financial stability . The bottom line is that I don't want to resort to this option. Neither does she when thinking clearly. I would prefer to take care of my spouse in a safe environment. This illness is not her fault but I'm using the law to fight the law which has no safeguards to prevent a mentally ill spouse endlessly filing for divorce and changing her mind which will leave us financially ruined. Guardianship doesn't prevent it either and would end up in a costly court battle. What about getting complete power of Attorney during a moment of clarity when agreement can be reached. It's seems mad that there is no provision for this kind of situation.
