Take a Deep Breath
No one plans on getting a divorce. But, if you have tried most everything to keep your marriage intact, and divorce is now your last option, planning ahead and being proactive is a good way to begin. There are several things to consider before filing for divorce that may help ease some of your stress once the case begins.
Recognize when your marriage is not reparable. Consider the emotional impact on your children and yourself. Do not use your children against your spouse. Encourage a positive parent-child relationship with your spouse when appropriate. Provide consistency in your children's school/extracurricular schedules. Negative energy will not improve your standing when deciding custody.
Maintain job, home, and income stability. Have a support system of family and friends in place. Plan a budget for retaining an attorney.
Be able to access bank accounts. Know your debt obligations. Obtain a record of any retirement accounts. Maintain health and auto insurance policies. Plan a visitation schedule for your spouse and children. Avoid making derogatory comments about your spouse in the presence of your children, and do not encourage third parties to do so. Make a list of marital property detailing what you want to keep as yours. Keep communications with your spouse cordial (texts/social media, etc). Maintain a record of any disparaging communications from your spouse. Determine whether you can discuss settlement with your spouse.
