You’ve made the decision to end your marriage. Now, it’s time to face the divorce process. Well, if you haven’t been through divorce before, knowing what to expect – and what to do – can be a bit of mystery. On top of that, if you end up making some common divorce mistakes, you could end up inadvertently complicating your case, costing you more emotionally and financially in the long run.

To help you get through divorce as smoothly as possible, here are some things you can (and should, if and when possible) do:

1 – DO some planning first.

Do you know what your marital financial situation is? Or what the extent of your marital assets and debts are? If not, an important first step to take can be to start pulling together the documents (and other info) that can provide a clearer picture of your marital estate. In fact, getting some of this legwork done upfront can help you save on legal costs and get your divorce case going much sooner.

2 – DO consider all of your options for ending your marriage.

Divorce is an option for ending marriages – but it’s not the only option, nor may it be the best option for every situation. In fact, depending on the circumstances, an annulment or legal separation may be preferable for couples.

So, as you are moving forward to end your marriage, be sure to consider all of your options – and if divorce is the preferred option, consider whether divorce mediation may be possible (because, when it is, it can save on the financial and emotional costs of divorce).

3 – DO be open to compromise.

As angry, upset, etc. as you may be about an impending divorce, being open to compromise is important because it can help you resolve some of the major issues of your divorce more quickly. In fact, if you and your ex are able to agree on even some of the issues in your divorce, the court won’t need to rule on these, potentially expediting a resolution in the case.

Additionally, when people show good faith and are able to compromise is in divorce, they can inspire their exes to do the same (making for a far less contentious divorce process).

4 – DO retain an experienced lawyer to represent you.

This is the most important “do” to remember, as having an experienced lawyer on your side during divorce can be pivotal to:

  • Understanding what to expect during the process
  • Protecting your interests through divorce
  • Realizing the best possible outcomes.
