Divorce – questions to ask during process

Deciding whether to end your marriage is probably one of the most important and difficult decisions you will ever make.

Even though this is an emotional matter, it is important to approach certain aspects with an analytical perspective.  There are many questions that need to be answered before proceeding with divorce.  The most important involve your children, support for them and for you, and the home itself.

      care, daycare, travel, etc.

·     Support – receiving child support/spousal support and the amount, claiming the children for

      income tax purposes

·     Home – living in the marital home, keeping the marital home, upkeep, making repairs, etc.
