What questions should you answer before divorcing?

Are you ready to move forward with the divorce process? While this may be something you have been thinking about, it doesn't necessarily mean you should end your relationship.

Before you make this big decision, there are a variety of questions you should first answer. These include:

-- Have you taken all the steps necessary in giving your marriage a chance to work?

-- Are you okay with the idea of moving on from your marriage?

-- Have you researched what goes into the divorce process, including how this will impact you financially?

-- Are you ready for your new life after divorce?

-- Are you willing to take on the responsibilities associated with co-parenting?

These questions may sound simple to answer, but they can be difficult to address if the time comes. You have a lot going through your mind, and there's a good chance you are being pulled in many different directions.

When you answer these questions before divorcing, it becomes much easier to feel good about the decision you are making and what will happen as a result.

Divorce is not a decision you take lightly. Even if you are sure this is the right choice, you need to be patient as you consider all your options.

Once you decide that divorce is the absolute best decision, it's time to plan for the future. This means many things, such as understanding how your life will change. By taking the right approach early on, you can put yourself in better position to get past this with a minimal amount of stress in the future. A family law attorney can provide you with more information on the divorce process and what you can expect.

Commandments of Family Law

  1. The only truth your children need to know is that you both love them unconditionally, and that this isn't their fault.
  2. Take the high road — everyone wins when you do what's best for your kids.
  3. Negotiate but don't capitulate — if you are being pushed toward something detrimental for your children, stand your ground.
  4. You can only control yourself and how you respond. Don't engage.
  5. Do set up rules and responsibilities. Kids feel better when routine is continued.
  6. You are still their parent — don't be afraid to be one.
  7. Disneyland is in California, not in your home. Don't set up unreasonable expectations.
  8. It is not their job to take care of you. Repeat that to them. Often.
  9. Yelling is for sports — not court. Good lawyers strongly advocate without being disrespectful to opposing parties.
  10. Fair is a place you go to get cheese curds. Aside from that, nothing in life is fair.
