If you are just beginning to think about separating and getting a divorce and don’t know what to do first, our just published free eBook titled “What You Need to Know About Getting a Divorce” is for you.  You can download it here.

Often when you first begin to think about breaking up you don’t know what to do first.

  • Should I consult with a lawyer?
  • What is a self-help divorce?
  • Should I represent myself?
  • What is mediation?
  • What is collaborative divorce?
  • Should I empty my bank account and protect my assets?
  • Am I entitled to child support?
  • Will I be accused of desertion if I leave my spouse?
  • How will property be divided?

This free eBook will help you to answer these questions and also help you to develop a strategy to pursue your divorce at the lowest possible cost. Divorce can be one of the highest cost legal transactions if you and your spouse have many conflicts that cannot be solved without litigation.  The lowest cost way to get a divorce is to make your divorce “uncontested” by entering into a marital separation agreement. Once you enter into a marital separation agreement, the next step is filing your divorce forms in court. But this can be a relatively simple and low cost procedure if there are no conflicts and you have settled your divorce issues with a marital separation agreement.

Many of the DirectLaw firms can provide you with all of the forms you need, bundled with legal advice, for a fixed fee. If you go this route it is possible to keep the costs of your divorce under $400.00 for legal fees + filing fees. If you have children, it makes more sense to invest your assets in your children’s future than in legal fees.
