Don't walk away from your marriage without a plan in place

Taking the step of filing for divorce is something that some individuals feel pressured into. You might feel like you can't live with your spouse another day. This is totally understandable, but you have to balance out the desire to run away with the need to protect your interests. In some cases, especially when your marriage isn't filled with violence, it might be best to grit your teeth and stick things out for a little longer.

You need time to prepare for a divorce, especially if you have children. Most couples can't live in the same house during a divorce. This means that you need to figure out where you are going to go or to figure out how to get your soon-to-be ex out of the house. Both of these can prove to be very challenging for everyone involved. We can help you to work out some of these aspects of the marital split.

You also need to make sure that you have what you need to ensure that you are able to divide property. Getting copies of investment and retirement account statements, bank statements, mortgage and debt statements and any other financial documents can help tremendously during the property division process. You may need to make copies of these and leave the originals in their proper place.

If you have children, you need to figure out how you are going to break the news to the children. This must be done in an age appropriate manner, so think carefully about this point. You also need to figure out how visitation, custody and support for the children will be handled.

Whether you need temporary orders or not, we can help you get your divorce petition moving forward when you are ready.
