When a person is ready to end his or her marriage, he or she may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of facing the unknown. Divorce, by nature, can be stressful, and many people experience a range of emotions throughout the process. Fortunately, there are some tips that can help a Missouri resident that is ready to embark on a new chapter as a single man or woman.
Divorce is rarely just about money, but financial information will be necessary during the process. It is important to gather all the information possible to prepare for court. A judge will want to know about marital assets, current employment status and even when each spouse gets paid.
If both parties are able to communicate in a civil manner, a post nuptial agreement may reduce the amount of time and money needed to finalize a divorce. A post-nuptial agreement is similar to a prenup, except that both parties agree to certain terms after a marriage. A postnup can include provisions about finances, division of property and even child custody.
In many cases, it is a good idea to find an experienced attorney to assist with the legal process of divorce. An attorney can help a client produce all the necessary information required by the court and assist with any negotiations that may need to happen with the other party. With the help of an attorney, a Missouri resident can work through the legal process of divorce and look forward to a fresh start after a divorce is finalized.
