A divorce often means that a separation agreement will need to be worked out. A legal separation can address a number of divorce issues, such as child custody, property division and support until your divorce is final.
If you are even thinking about getting a divorce, knowing what the law says about this can help you know what your options are.
There are certain aspects of getting a divorce that need to be addressed. You will need to gather certain information to present to the court, such as a parenting plan for any kids involved. Also, all your financial information to include assets, debts, income and ongoing expenses need to be available for review.
If you can, get any information about your spouse's financial information. You may need a court order for this if you believe some assets are hidden, but your attorney can help with this.
Separating means a physical and even a personal upheaval. You have to separate all that you built together and this can be painful. Emotions can quickly rule your decisions and that often results in decisions you may wish you hadn't made later on.
