Divorce is a difficult process for all parties involved. It involves a great deal of emotional upheaval, financial strain, and a complex legal process. A divorce can be especially difficult when emotions are running high and there are unresolved issues between the two parties. These issues can include disagreements over children and support, division of assets, and alimony.


During a divorce, the assets and liabilities of the couple will be divided between them. This typically involves liquidating or dividing any joint assets, such as bank accounts, investments, real estate, vehicles, and other property.

Both parties must also agree on the division of any debts or liabilities, including credit card debt, mortgages, and any loans. In some cases, one party may be required to pay spousal or child support to the other for a certain period of time.

1. Understand the Laws: Before filing for divorce, it is important to understand the laws that apply regarding where children will live, decision making for the chidren, spousal support, and division of marital property.

2. Choose the Filing Status: The filing status will determine the type of documentation and paperwork needed to file for a joint divorce(parties file together making the process easier), a party files on their own(this means they have to “serve” the other party the documents, making it more difficult).

3. Collect Required Documentation: Gather all necessary documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and financial documents.

4. Create a Separation Agreement: A separation agreement is a legally binding document that details the terms and conditions of the divorce. This includes information about decision making for the children, parenting time, spousal support, and division of assets.

5. File the Divorce: Once the divorce paperwork is prepared, the couple must file the documents with the court.

 6. Attend Court Hearings: Depending on the state, the couple may be required to attend court hearings to finalize the divorce.

7. Obtain a Final Divorce Decree: Once the court approves the divorce, the couple will receive a final divorce decree.
