A divorce isn’t something that most people need to do as a snap judgement. Instead, you need to take time to think and plan, especially if you and your children aren’t in any danger. You might be surprised at what you need to think about when it comes to leaving your marriage.

We understand that you might feel like you are at your wit’s end with the marriage. This is a common thought. Instead of making yourself rush to file for divorce, take a step back and think about the logistics of walking away.

You will need somewhere to live if you aren’t going to remain in the marital home. Think about how you will obtain that place and keep it. You will need to ensure that your income is sufficient to leave. There isn’t any guarantee that you will receive alimony, so you shouldn’t count on that.

You also need to think about how you are going to handle the logistics of child care and transportation. You could likely count on your spouse to help you with the children, but this isn’t going to be the case for most people who are going through a divorce. Try to make plans for this before you walk away.

Another thing to consider is how you will handle debts. The debts that you and your ex have don’t go away just because you are divorcing. These will have to be divided, but you need to formulate a plan for getting them paid during the divorce process or you might have to deal with a negative impact to your credit.
