When everything is going well with your marriage, you may feel like you're in total control. However, if you decide to move forward with the divorce process, it's possible that your life could be turned upside down.
Although every divorce is the same in some ways, it's safe to assume that you'll also face some unique circumstances. Consider the following:
-- If you have children, you will eventually have to deal with questions and concerns related to child custody and support.
-- The need for one party to pay the other spousal support.
-- Property division, including but not limited to bank accounts, retirement accounts, the family home and much more.
-- Fathers' rights.
-- Military divorce.
Even if you don't think you'll face any unique concerns, you never know what the future could bring.
For example, you may not believe you'll have to pay spousal support, but this could all change once the process begins to move forward.
If divorce is on the horizon, the best thing you can do is prepare for anything and everything that could come your way.
