3 Questions To Ask Yourself If Considering Divorce
1. Have you tried working your issues out amongst yourselves?
You don't want to go through the painful process that divorce can be and feel like you made the wrong decision. It's wise to pursue every available option to work out your marriage first just so that you are certain when you choose to divorce, that it was the right call for you and your family. You should do what's best for your specific situation but just be prepared and armed with all of the available information.
2. What is your plan post-divorce for your children?
If you are considering divorce you should know now that the court rules in the best interest of the children. Whatever you may be envisioning for your kids, you need to be realistic and communicate with your ex because your plan may not align with what is best for your kids.
3. What are your financial concerns regarding divorce?
There are many different types of marriages, some where both parents and some where one parent works and the other gives up his or her job to stay home to care for your small children. If you give up your job for your kids and then you get divorced, you may be concerned about how you will support yourself and your children. If this sounds like your situation, you should ask your divorce lawyer in Mid-MO about alimony and what your chances are of getting it.
