Prepare for your divorce before you ever suggest it

Before you file for divorce, there are things you should know. While your decision is one likely based on facts and emotion, you need to understand that emotion can't play a role in the steps you take next. Everything you do has to be with your best financial interests in mind. Even if your divorce is emotionally charged, making sound decisions is a must.

Before you go through a divorce, though, your first step is to assess whether this is what you want. It is not easy to turn back once you file for divorce. Many spouses are hurt by the thought that their significant others would want to end the marriage, so this could cause irreparable harm to your relationship if you change your mind.

If you decide that ending the marriage is right for you, then you should find an attorney. It's usually better to get an attorney before you approach your spouse with the divorce so that you can get an idea about what documents you'll need before you begin the process. It's always smart to collect documents about your finances before you talk to your spouse about divorce so that you know you can gain access to your shared assets and information.

After this, you'll want to think about the financial position you're in. What should you ask for from your marital assets? What would help you be financially secure following your divorce?

Once you sit down and consider the factors that play a role in your divorce, you can talk to your attorney about moving forward. Our site has information on what to expect once you file.
