This answer was rated:

My wife left me last week. The only reason she gave me is that she has been unhappy for a long time. I want to seek concealing. I was to change. I want to save our marriage, but she is trying to rush the process. She says she doesn't want to involve lawyers. What can the law do to help me win her back?
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.

Good afternoon. I am sorry to hear about your situation and certainly understand what you are going through. In Indiana, a dissolution of marriage shall be decreed upon a finding by a court that there is a irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. As such, if she is able to testify and show that she has been unhappy for a long time and there is no chance of reconciliation, the Judge is going to grant the divorce. A court can not force a party to stay married to their spouse, so she does have a legal right to proceed. In an ideal situation, you would be able to ask her to give you time and attempt to go to couples counseling, to try and work things out. This may be something that needs to be worked on together, not just by yourself. If she will not agree and does file, you can always ask/suggest to the Judge and see if he/she would consider sending the parties to counseling to try and save the marriage but if she is unwilling to cooperate, can not be forced. I know you said that she does not want to involve lawyers, so you could suggest that if she just gives you a chance to change and fix this and things do not work out, you will agree to proceed with the divorce and no contest it.
