The process of divorcing means that you have several things to think about. You have to divide property, figure out a plan for the children and work out support agreements. You also need to think about practical matters like where you’ll live and how to move forward with your life. Overall, this is probably one of the biggest life changes you’ll go through.
We know that you may have some questions about what’s going to happen and how things might work. While there aren’t any two divorces that are exactly alike, there are some general guidelines to consider.
The property division process is one challenge that you’ll face. You and your ex must divide all assets and debts, so it might be best if you make a list of these ahead of time and think about how you might be impacted by various splits.
One thing to remember is that you’ll have to rely solely on your own income, so be careful about trying to keep assets that have upkeep costs associated with them. You may realize that even though you like the vacation home, keeping it will put too much of a strain on your finances.
When it comes to the children, you have to try to set child custody arrangements up based on what’s best for them. This isn’t always what’s easiest for you so be sure to think carefully about how they’ll be affected by the parenting plan.
