There are a few different things that you’ll need to consider when ending your marriage. One of the first is the logistical considerations. These include where you will live, how you will get around, how you will support yourself, what will happen to the kids and similar points. You and your ex may have to work together to come up with solutions for some of these dilemmas.
During the divorce, you’ll need to work through the legal matters. This is when the practical decisions will come into the picture. You need to think carefully about how things are divided at the end of the marriage. For example, you might want the marital home, but it might be best to bypass it if it will eat up most of your monthly budget.
We can help you consider the various arrangements for property division that might be possible. This can give you time to evaluate how they might impact you before you have to make decisions about the settlement.
