Divorce is a highly emotional time regardless if it is your choice. There is a lot to consider while separating your life emotionally, physically, and financially. It is never a good idea to try and make these decisions alone.
Your rights change dramatically depending on the length of your marriage and whether or not there are children involved. These can implicate your rights to child support, spousal support aka alimony, retirement accounts, healthcare benefits, and so much more.
Due to the stress of the situation many people can act erratically and out of character. Having a trusted legal advisor on your side can help you get through the process as quickly and protected as possible.
