The New Year is just around the corner, and with it follows New Year resolutions filled with new goals and opportunities. For some, at the top of the resolution list may be the decision to file for divorce. Whether you are considering a divorce, or recently learned your spouse is seeking one, here are some simple tips to provide you with comfort and reassurance this time of year.
Be Prepared: Perhaps the most difficult step to take in divorce is the very first. When emotions are high, it’s important not to become distracted or lose sight of the “bigger picture”. Take time to pause, reflect, and get prepared. While the process can be emotional, it is most important to prepare yourself for the road ahead. A divorce will often have financial implications, can affect living arrangements and will often have a lasting impact on family and children. Regardless of whether you or your spouse are seeking a separation, know when and who to turn to for advice during this difficult time.
Consult with Professionals: It is normal to have questions and to sometimes feel overwhelmed. If you are considering divorce, start by contacting an experienced Family Law Attorney and schedule a consultation. An Attorney specializing in Family Law will be equipped with the experience, drive and knowledge to provide answers and direction required to navigate the road ahead.
In cases involving complex income assets, or support, it is all the more important to start and finish with an Attorney with a strong background in such cases. At the Law Offices of Lisa A. Ruggieri, P.C., our team has more than twenty years of experience in handling and navigating Family Law cases.
Take Command: Above all else, remember you possess the power to take command over the divorce process.
