We’ve designed this site to help make the divorce process as easy as possible for you and your spouse. See the links in the menu above to find all the information you need to make your divorce process as straightforward and worry-free as possible.
Divorce is a fact of life. In Western Societies over 90% of people will marry at some point in their lives. Many of these relationships were never meant to last a lifetime, and many change with time, to the point that they no longer make sense to continue.
In the USA, as of 2012, the divorce rate has increased to over 50% of all marriages.
If you are planning to get divorced, don’t feel like you’re alone or there is something wrong with you or your partner. Many people just fall out of love, or their situations change to the point where they don’t want to be together anymore.
Moving on is often very much the right thing to do.
Try to take all the steps you can to make the divorce process happen as quickly and easily as possible. If you are still on good terms with your partner, aim to go through an uncontested divorce process and agree on how you will split your shared assets.
If your relationship with your partner has deteriorated to the point that you will disagree over your separation, hire a lawyer. A lawyer will be able to advise you on how to proceed as quickly and effectively as possible.
The period of divorce can be very emotional and upsetting for all parties involved. It is in your best interests to try and reach a resolution and move on with your life as quickly as possible.
“The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving. I didn’t want to destroy anything or anybody. I just wanted to slip quietly out the back door, without causing any fuss or consequences, and then not stop running until I reached Greenland.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
Try to make sure you have as many close friends and family around you to support you during the divorce period. It can be more emotionally draining than it first appears and it can make a huge difference if have somebody to talk to.
Try to also be as understanding as you can through the whole process. The less you fight and the more you can forgive your partner, as hard as that may be, the better you will both feel once the process is complete. You can then get on with living your life and finding new happiness in a new direction.
“Divorce isn’t such a tragedy. A tragedy’s staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.”
― Jennifer Weiner, Fly Away Home
