On the surface, divorce is nothing more than a process that allows you to put your marriage in the past.
While this is the most basic way of looking at divorce, there are many challenges that will move to the forefront as the days go by. If you’re not ready for these, there’s a chance you could make a mistake that costs you time and money, while also increasing your level of anxiety.
Here are some of the things that you may have to deal with along the way:
- Matters of child custody and child support, such as where your child will live
- Marital property division (as well as debt division)
- Spousal support
If you have at least one child with the other parent, you can rest assured that you’ll need to discuss the details of custody and child support. There is no way around this, so you need to be prepared from day one.
Also, property division can also be a sticking point, as both individuals will be fighting to obtain as many assets as possible.
