3 Things to Do if Divorce Is Imminent

Consult an Attorney

One of the first and most important things that you should do if divorce is looming is to consult a Cape May County divorce and separation lawyer. Typically, if you have already spoken to an attorney regarding your case, your spouse is unable to hire them even if you choose to work with someone else.

Consider Your Children

If you have children, it is essential that you do all you can to make the divorce process as easy on them as possible. Divorce is stressful for children, and it is easy to get wrapped up in all of the proceedings and details and forget about their state of mind and feelings about everything. Keep an open dialogue with your children and encourage them to share how they feel with you as often as they wish.

Take Inventory of Your Possessions

Now is the time to inventory the possessions in your home. What is yours and what belongs exclusively to your spouse? Are there any shared items that both of you may want? Having a clear idea of what belongs to whom and what items may cause problems will hopefully keep you from being blindsided once proceedings begin.
