getting married is easy. getting divorced is hard.
The separation of spouses takes an enormous emotional and financial toll on a family.
Trust is shattered, routines are uplifted, conflicts are amplified, and money becomes tighter. In short, things will never be the same again. While dealing with the breakdown of the marriage can be hard enough, life does not get put on hold. Children still need to be cared; bills and expenses still have to be paid; work and all of the other responsibilities that existed prior to the separation continue. Important decisions often have to be made early in the process of separation.
Getting good and timely advice is essential to minimizing the financial impact on you, your spouse, and your children. There are going to be a lot of people offering advice on what you should do. While the support of family and friends is going to be essential to getting through a divorce, it is important that you get legal advice about your rights and responsibilities.
