Divorce doesn’t have to be a nightmare!
Even amicable divorces can become contentious and messy when disagreements about child custody or financial matters arise. Many divorces start off messy and get progressively worse. But the end of your marriage doesn’t have to be a nightmare. There are steps you can take, even before the divorce process has begun in some cases, to prepare yourself financially and emotionally for the road ahead.
At some point, emotions run high in nearly every divorce. Even if the dissolution of your marriage is mutual, no children are involved, and you have minimal assets to divide, the end of an intimate relationship typically involves some level of grieving. This is particularly true when you have lived with a person for several years, sharing a bed, household chores, finances, laughter, arguments, and everything else that comes with marriage.
