PLAN CAREFULLY WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO FILE FOR DIVORCE
Many people think of their divorce as the end of a marriage. Others think of it as the start of a new chapter in life. No matter which group you are in, you will still have to work through the divorce issues so that you can have that final divorce order.
When you file for divorce, you will have to serve your ex. Before you take this step, you need to make sure that you are prepared for a divorce. This means gathering up copies of financial documents and making sure that you are ready to handle the situations that arise from the filing. We can help you from the start to the finish.
Once you have filed and your ex has been served, you can move forward with the process. At this time, you and your ex will likely need to decide on matters like where the children will live and what type of visitation schedule will govern the children.
You will also need to determine if there is going to be spousal support factored into the divorce. This consideration might be difficult to think about, but it is important to discuss this if there is a chance that it will be a factor. We are here to answer any questions you have about alimony.
Property division is another thing to think carefully about. Don’t think about things in terms of what they were during your marriage. Instead, think about how each asset can help or harm you now that you are going to rely on your income. From there, you can make decisions about what you feel you should try to keep and what you can part with. We can help you with these negotiations.
