As someone who is struggling with divorce, you might feel like your world is tumbling down around you. You may not want to see your estranged spouse or might feel that you are better off not asking for anything and walking away.
The fact about divorce is that it can be very difficult. That doesn’t mean that you should give up what is legally yours to avoid conflict. One thing your attorney will help you do is to determine what you want and what you need from your marriage. Your attorney can take the lead in negotiating with your estranged spouse or their attorney so that you can still get the assets you need without necessarily having to discuss the situation with your spouse.
It’s true that divorce can be uncomfortable, but you need to think of the legal aspects of divorce as a business arrangement that you help build. You’re not asking your spouse to get back together with you, to admit fault or anything emotional at all. Instead, you’re going to take a stance that you earned some, potentially many, of these assets and deserve to take them with you when you go. Your financial investments matter, and they should be shared fairly during divorce.
