You may have already talked it through with friends and family, even scheduled the consultation with a divorce attorney, or been to counseling. There is a good chance that if you have even been thinking about filing for divorce for some time, you have carefully weighed all the pros and cons in your mind well in advance.
However, as we get towards the end of the year, many people are contemplating their new year’s resolutions and what they want to be different in the year following. You may be certain for example, that after plenty of time to think it over to try to work things out without resolution, that now is the time to file for divorce. There are several different options you need to consider as you move forward with the divorce petition. You need to evaluate how child focused you want your divorce to be and the overall complexity of the case, in order to help you identify a divorce lawyer who is right for.
Divorce is extremely personal and requires looking at your financial situation as well as the likely child custody or child support situation in advance. The laws of your state will dictate issues such as child custody, child support, division of property and alimony or spousal support. However, being armed with information at the outset of your case and scheduling a consultation directly with a divorce attorney can help you to figure out the next steps you will need to take in order to file for divorce in the New Year. It can be difficult to break the news to your spouse or to come to an agreement over the holidays during an especially tense family meeting. However, consulting with an experienced divorce lawyer can give you a better overview of the options available to you and the common challenges you might face in moving forward with the divorce petition.
