Making the Right Decisions

Some of what we're about to advise might seem obvious. But it's our experience that these things need to be clearly stated so they can be more easily remembered. It's quite easy for "obvious" considerations to get lost in the emotional wreckage that's lying around after the decision to undergo a divorce is made.

Here's what you should do after deciding that a divorce is right for you:

  • Keep calm. Do not let your emotions control you. Instead, it's important to see your divorce through the lens of a business decision. This is vital advice at just about any point in the divorce process, of course, but emotions are particularly raw right after a decision is made. Don't engage in petty vandalism or theft. Make sure all the communal property of your marriage is in good shape and well-documented.
  • Assemble as much financial documentation as you can – tax returns, pay stubs, bank statements, credit card statements, etc. Anything you can think of. The more information everyone has, the better your eventual settlement will be.
  • Research your legal options online and you will find that Split Simple offers the perfect balance between obtaining an understanding of the legal issues in this life changing event, but still achieving a significant cost savings versus the traditional courtroom divorce process. Ultimately, we provide you with the information you need at this critical time without releasing control of your life to others." Read up on Split Simple, then contrast our process with the reality of a traditional courtroom divorce. Decide if mediation is an appealing option to you.
