Once you’ve reached the point where you know it is time to move on from your marriage, how best to go about it?
Unless the divorce is going to be a contentious one, it is best to keep things as civil and adult as possible. Even when the divorce will be a challenging one, try your best to not get down in the dirt. That is especially key if young children are involved.
That said you want to have a plan in place for the following:
- How will you handle your finances moving ahead?
- If young children are involved, what kind of custody time might you seek?
- If you have a business arrangement with your mate, how will that be affected moving forward?
- Are there things such as property, pets and more you will have to divide up or share?
Being able to answer those and other pertinent questions is critical. Try your best to be on the same page with things and avoid having the courts make the decisions for you.
