Things to Consider Before Getting a Nassau County Divorce

If you believe it is time to divorce your spouse, you most likely have various concerns regarding the legal process going forward. Fortunately, our experienced Nassau County divorce firm is here to answer your questions and help you prepare for the road ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What should I do if I think I’m ready to get a divorce?

The first thing you must do is ask yourself if you are ready. Divorce is rarely easy, and as you surely know, it is often an emotionally, as well as financially and legally complex issue. That is why you must collect yourself and ensure you are ready to move ahead with the process before doing so. If you’re ready, you should hire an experienced attorney and begin planning your next steps forward. Though it may seem overwhelming now, take solace in the fact that with a bit of self-education and the assistance of an experienced, compassionate attorney, it does not have to be.

What documents will I need to get a Nassau County divorce?

One of the biggest steps in preparing for your divorce is gathering various documents that both your attorney and the courts will need to proceed. For example, you will most likely have to turn over your W-2, various credit card statements, pay stubs, bank statements, information about any property you and your spouse own, and more. Divorce is a very document-heavy process, which is why you should always stay organized. This means keeping folders for papers, lists of information pertaining to your divorce, and more to ensure everything is in order. Additionally, it is always best to exhaustively calculate what your financial situation will be once you no longer have an additional paycheck to rely on (i.e. weekly/monthly bills, weekly food shopping, etc.).

Are there different ways to get divorced?

There are three main types of divorce available to Nassau County individuals. They are litigation, mediation, and arbitration. Though generally, mediation is preferred, as it offers some divorcing spouses an out-of-the-courtroom setting to handle their legal situation. Unfortunately, when spouses do not agree on the terms of their divorce and cannot reach a compromise through mediation, their divorce will generally go through the litigation process. If you are about to enter litigation, you need a knowledgeable, aggressive attorney on your side. Fortunately, you’ve found him.
