Keeping yourself protected during divorce is a primary goal of the process. While you are working on your side, your ex will be doing the same thing on that side. This is why it is imperative to be willing to put forth the effort into your case.
Even if you and your ex are splitting under good terms, you still can't count on him or her to do what is best for you. Now that the relationship is over, you have to think for yourself. This is a big change for many people going through a divorce because they are so accustomed to having a spouse working toward a common goal with them.
We understand that you might not even know where to start to protect your interests. We are here to take a look at your case and help you determine what you can do. One thing that you need to think about is that your household income is going to be cut significantly now. You can't count on your ex's income to help support you.
The decrease in income might impact what you are able to do financially. You might not be able to afford the mortgage of the marital home, the car payment, insurance, taxes, upkeep and other costs associated with these assets. This might mean that you will be very stressed out trying to make ends meet. An alternative to this stress is simply letting those expensive assets go.
There are sometimes difficult decisions that come with the property division process. We can help you figure out the pros and cons of the options that you have so that you can make an informed decision about what to do.
