5 things to remember when you're getting a divorce

If you've decided to get a divorce, making that decision probably did not happen easily. It came after you considered all the possibilities and ramifications of what your future life will be like as a single person or single parent. Now that you've chosen to make your divorce a reality, there are several things you'll want to keep in mind:


  • It takes a while to recover: This is not like breaking up with a high school boyfriend. This is divorce and you will feel it. Everyone bounces back into a normal feeling of life in their own time, and the amount of time it takes can vary greatly from person to person. Don't be hard on yourself if your recovery process takes longer than you expected.

  • Be careful about whom you pick for a lawyer: If you have a lawyer friend who does criminal law and offers to take on your divorce case, consider that it might be better to work with an experienced divorce attorney. Also, someone new, who is more impartial to your situation will have a more business-like approach, which is exactly what you need to navigate your divorce successfully.

  • Be diligent to investigate the extent of your marital estate: Make sure you know what your online bank account passwords, and track down all your investment accounts, debts and other assets. This will help you know what you have a legal right to receive during the asset division process.

  • Estimate your future living costs: You will soon be living on your own, and that means you'll need to support yourself with your own income. Make an accurate estimate of how much money you'll need to survive and budget accordingly.

This advice will certainly help you prepare for your upcoming divorce, but it's certainly not everything you'll need to know. By consulting with an experienced Houston divorce lawyer at Barker Law Firm PC, you can get more information about how to get ready for your divorce so you can navigate the process quickly, cost effectively and with as little stress as possible.
