WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE BEFORE FILING FOR DIVORCE?
With a roadmap to guide you, you can move toward divorce or separation. Before filing for a divorce, consider taking the following steps:
- Explore counseling: You may be able to avoid divorce entirely. First try to reconcile with your spouse.
- Speak to an attorney: If counseling is not successful, an attorney can help guide you through the divorce process based on your personal situation.
- Consider separation: A legal separation agreement puts your marriage on hold, but does not end it.
- Discuss child custody: Involve your attorney in your child custody discussion early on to minimize the impact of divorce on your children.
- Anticipate expenses: Divorce includes costs like court filings, attorney and meditation fees, evaluation fees, guardian ad litem fees, and more. If your divorce is contested, costs can increase.
- Manage finances: Consolidate your financial information to reach a favorable settlement in the divorce.
- Talk it through with your spouse: Although not advisable in all cases, discuss the possibility of divorce with your spouse. You may be able to reconcile, or come up with strategies together.
Finally, if you do decide to move forward with a divorce, explore mediation to avoid litigation.
