Divorce is complicated - be prepared

Divorce is never easy. It is full of intricate details that you must address while going through an emotional time. Unfortunately, the legal and financial issues of your divorce will not wait for you. This is why it is important to have an experienced divorce attorney in your corner to help you protect your interests.

Before your first meeting with your lawyer, it is important to make certain preparations. By coming to the meeting prepared, you will save yourself both time and money. Your lawyer will need information concerning your finances, details of the property that both you and your spouse own, and anything else pertinent to ending your marriage. Read further for some of the items you should be prepared to discuss.

Who decides the value of your assets in a divorce?

When you're in the process of obtaining a divorce, there are a lot of details to worry about. In fact, other than custody and visitation of children, the division of your assets is probably the most important issue you face. If you and your former spouse are going through a contentious divorce, that can make the asset division process much more difficult. What if your spouse is hiding assets? What if he or she is lying about the value of non-financial assets, such as fine art?

The truth is that the more assets your family has, the more complicated your divorce will likely become. That's why it is critical that you work with an experienced divorce attorney.

Asset division: Am I going to lose my Aspen Mountain ski house?

It's a dream come true, owning an Aspen mountain home. Every time you fasten on your skis at the doorstep and downhill over fresh powder to the ski lift, you pinch yourself to make sure it's real.

You live for your Aspen Mountain weekend escapes, but with your impending divorce, the future of your ski house is in question. Who's going to get it after the dust settles? Are you going to lose your winter get-away?

Friend or Foe: Who is following you on Facebook?

Those engaged in the divorce process know how it's possible to feel alone when surrounded by others. Acrimonious meetings between spouses paired with legal representatives may span hours. Divvying up assets and property may prove exhausting. Those who are successful know when to compromise and when to become adamant. Those who aren't adept in articulating their wishes expend more energy and emotions. Although the discussions and debates take place with an audience of attorneys and an antagonistic spouse, most people are likely to feel isolated in this company.

It is for this reason, that when they are home alone, those engaged in divorce proceedings seek comfort from others. Years ago, individuals in need of solace picked up the phone for a chat. Today, social media addresses the needs of those requiring rapid relief. The benefits of using outlets such as Facebook or Instagram are well-documented. The efficiency and effectiveness in updating one's emotional or financial status are the reasons these corporations are flush with followers.
