3 things to do when asking for a divorce

You’ve thought long and hard about asking your spouse for a divorce, and have finally come to the realization that it’s best for you. Now, it’s time to take things to the next level by discussing your feelings with your spouse.

It’s never easy to have this conversation, but there are things you can do to lessen the stress. Here are three simple steps to take:

  • Prepare yourself: Don’t go into the conversation with the idea that you’ll take things as they come. Sure, you have to remain flexible to a certain degree, but you should still have an understanding of what you want to say and how you’ll react to your spouse.
  • Be firm: If you know that you want to divorce, don’t let your spouse talk you out of it. Going down this path is likely to lead you to the exact same place again in the future.
  • Don’t discuss the details of your divorce: There’s a lot to negotiate in divorce, ranging from spousal support to property division to child custody. You need to figure these things out, but you don’t have to discuss them just yet. There is time for doing so when the divorce process actually begins.

By taking these steps when asking for a divorce, you’ll feel better about your ability to lay everything out on the table. Once you do so, you can then prepare for the divorce process by learning more about your legal rights and preparing for any challenges to come.

Divorce is never easy, but getting started on the right foot will help ease the pain.
