Preparing for Divorce

Preparing for Divorce

Preparing for DivorcePreparing for divorce is tough. When a couple decide to divorce, their decisions rarely affect them and them alone. When you divorce, you are dismantling a family – that decision will ripple through the rest of your family and your friendships. Most importantly, it will affect the lives of your children. To some extent, all of the decisions in a divorce – including the division of property and assets – revolve around children, because both spouses will want to prioritize their children’s stability. Both will need to work together to come up with creative solutions to child custody, honest agreements about child support, and answers to all the other questions about parenting post-divorce – including travel, extracurriculars, and educational costs – that put the children’s interests first.

To do this, it will be necessary for both parties to approach the process ready and willing to listen and to speak, to suggest, to debate, and to compromise. Having an attorney that you trust to be as committed to your children’s well-being as you are – and to foresee problems you won’t – is very important. However, there is no substitution for preparation. You’re entering a process that will shape the rhythms of your children’s’ lives and determine your ability to provide for them. You need to think through the major issues you will address before you start the process – whether that process takes you to mediation, negotiation, or litigation in a courtroom.
