Should you be considering divorce, please try to keep it amicable. Often children are involved and should not be brought into a fight.
Despite what we have said, never agree to use the same attorney unless you are absolutely sure that the two of you have reached a fair agreement.
Do not be placed under pressure from your husband/wife to “get it over and done with to save costs”.
Consult a divorce lawyer to be sure that you are aware of your rights. Do this before barging ahead.
Always keep in mind that it is not the lawyers that settle the issues, it is you and your spouse. They (the attorneys) take the money if you two are unreasonable. Be realistic.
If you follow the above advice a lot of money and heartache could be saved.
