Tips Preparing for Divorce

Divorce is not the hope of every married couple. But if it can not be discussed again, you may be asking “Is my marriage has ended?”, “What should I do?”. Not sure what you should do first? Here are some tips on how to prepare yourself for a divorce and a new future:

1. Are Children Involved? Avoid telling them in detail to your children. This thing will only make a difficult transition for them. It is best to get them (the children) to speak, but do not use it as a media-raising counseling or support. If you need someone to talk to and consult you, counselor, psychologist, or perhaps someone who understands the issues and can talk with you.

2. Protecting Yourself. You’ll want to make sure you get the financial account. If you have assets you want to protect for the kids, then immediately transfer them into account on their behalf. Do not forget to check carefully the receiver!

3. Who Gets What? Start talking with your spouse about who gets what after a period of separation. If it reached an agreement, written agreement and approved by the notaries. If you are unable to deal on an item, start a list. At least you start to get it all!

4. Choosing a lawyer. Most lawyers offer free consultations. Start looking for a lawyer. The more interviews you do to a lawyer, you will learn much about what you want from a lawyer.
