The end of a marriage can be emotionally taxing, and there's no question that the last thing you want to do is to deal with legal paperwork and court dates. This is why you should begin working with your attorney as soon as you can. If you do, your attorney can focus on negotiating for the assets you want and having your settlement prepared while you focus on your own health and future.
Emotionally, a divorce can take a toll. Even if you're happy to go through a divorce, the stress of collecting documents, responding to the court and other aspects of the case can be frustrating and time-consuming. You may also be dealing with the loss of friends or family members who you were close to, further stressing you out.
