Sometimes divorce is unexpected. Sometimes you know for quite a while it is inevitable. In any event, you need to be prepared so that, when it is all over, you end up in as good a condition as possible, both emotionally and financially. Some things that will help are:
Figure out what you own, and what your assets and debts are.
Do your best to keep a positive outlook, even though it may be difficult at times. Gather all relevant financial documents together for your attorney.
Keep these papers in a safe place.
Hire an attorney who is a good fit for you.
Be honest with your attorney, and fully disclose all information he needs for your case.
Follow the advice your attorney gives you.
Get credit in your own name.
Determine what your living expenses will be after the divorce.
Talk to your attorney before deciding to move out of your home.
Take care of yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually.
