Creating A Strategy For Divorce

If you are considering divorce, you may be concerned about how this change in your family structure will affect you. In addition to the changes with your spouse, divorce has an impact on your relationships with your children, your living situation and your finances.

Just as when making any major decision in your life, it is essential to consider your options carefully and have a practical plan in place before you file for divorce.
