Some Questions to Ask

en español>

If you are thinking about getting a divorce, each of you needs to begin thinking about and preparing for a separate life. This may or may not be complicated in your situation, but you might think about:

  • How much money you will need to support yourself (and your child if there is a child of this relationship);
  • Whether you might consider going back to school to get a higher degree;
  • Where you will live, and what kind of place you will need. (For example, you may need at least 2 bedrooms, or you may need to live near work or public transportation); and
  • Where you will work, and what kind of work schedule you will have. (This is especially important if you will have child care issues.)
