Things to Consider Before Getting Divorced

Do you really want a divorce? What would you like your life to look like six months from now?
A year from now? Five years from now?
Are you open to marriage counseling? We have excellent recommendations if this is still an option.
Gather initial financial records using the Florida Financial Affidavit as a guide.
Take an inventory of your personal belongings that do not fit into the financial affidavit.
Get a copy of your credit report to verify your debts.
Consider if you’re able to afford moving away from your marital home before an order of support is entered. If you had to pay support, how much support could you afford and still be able to live independently?
Are you open to mediation or collaborative divorce? Or will a delay only exacerbate the situation?
