Divorce is very serious (obviously). Your divorce will likely have big consequences both for you and your child(ren). Before moving forward with divorce, you should consult with two to three Tulsa Divorce Lawyers in order to learn your options. Also, before moving forward you should think long and hard about the consequences. Below is a list of 5 things for you to consider before moving forward:
Consideration #1 – Carefully weigh the consequences before filing. Divorce may seem like the best way to get out of a failing marriage, but as stated above, divorce is a major decision which you should thoroughly think through. Here is a helpful tip – talk with your close friends and family members first…they will provide you with an outsider’s perspective.
Consideration #2 – Seek Marital Counseling. Talking and opening up to a marriage counselor is a good way to let your thoughts and feelings out. Try to seek marriage counseling before ending the marriage. If it works, great! You and your spouse will have reconciled and can move forward with the marriage. If the marriage counseling does not work, you should then consider moving forward with a divorce. Do keep in mind, marriage counseling will only work if you and your spouse both participate in good faith.
Consideration #3 – Legal Separation or Divorce. There are instances where husband and wife will be better off living separate from each other, while still remaining married. If you are not sure whether you want a divorce or a legal separation, you should speak with some Tulsa Divorce Lawyers first. After doing so, you might want to file for legal separation first…you can convert your case into a divorce later if needed.
Consideration #4 – Consider The Lifestyle Changes. Think about how things are going to change during and after the divorce. Will you be able to support yourself financially? Will you have a place to live and a vehicle to drive? These are only some of the many changes you need to think about. Be sure you are ready to deal with them should you decide to move forward with a divorce.
Consideration #5 – Your Child(ren). How about the kids? Who will have custody of them? If you decide to end the marriage, be ready to accept that you may have to share custody of them to the other parent, and you will have to maintain a civil relationship with your spouse in order to raise the child(ren) well.
