If you decide to move forward with divorce, you need to answer this question: How will your life change?
For many, divorce is something they can put in the past relatively quickly. Others, however, realize this is not the case. They understand that it will impact them in a variety of ways.
Do you have children with your soon-to-be former spouse? If so, you should realize that questions regarding child custody and child support will come to light soon enough. You need to know what you are up against and how to deal with this situation.
Another concern for many is property division. For instance, both partners will want to know who gets the house. Along with this, many other assets will also be discussed during this process.
Of course, don't forget about alimony. This does not always come into play, but if it does, it can greatly change the life of both parties. In short, this is when one person provides the other with financial support, despite the fact that the two are no longer married.
These concerns should not be enough to stop you from filing for divorce, but they should help you understand that the future will be full of many details that require your attention.
