Evaluate your situation realistically during a divorce

Anything related to your family during a divorce is something that you have to think carefully about. We recently discussed the costs of a divorce. These are more far reaching than what you might realize. It is imperative that you think carefully about all of these costs so that you can try to prepare your budget for them.

One thing that you need to remember when you are calling it quits is that you are going to have to rely only on your income. You won't have your ex's income as a cushion for when things get tough. Planning a budget based on this is a good step to take before you make any decisions regarding the property division process or other money factors in the divorce.

It is easy to just assume that you can afford to hang on to assets, but this isn't always the case. You should take the time to write out a budget. Include all the bills you have to pay, including housing costs, utilities, vehicle payments, insurance, loans and other expenses. Make sure that you are realistic in these.

We know that you might have some concerns about specific points of the divorce. We can help you evaluate every point that you think might come up. This includes child custody, alimony, child support, property division and similar factors.

As you think about each of these points, make sure that you think about what you want and what you can realistically do. Your divorce should be a fresh start, but it shouldn't include things that are going to stress you out.
