Know your rights and options during an unexpected divorce

You have to protect yourself if your ex unexpectedly filed for a divorce. Chances are good that your ex has been planning the divorce for at least a little while before filing the petition. In a way, you now have to play catch up so that you can ensure that you aren't getting the short end of the stick for your divorce. We know that this is difficult, but being prepared can help you to feel a little less stressed about the situation.

In a recent blog post, we discussed how a divorce can impact your credit. For some people, this isn't a huge deal. But, for people who have worked hard to build a good credit score, this can be devastating. This is especially true for those who might need to rely on credit to survive after the divorce. This is only one of the points that you have to consider if you are going through a divorce.

You also have to think about what will happen to your assets. This can include the marital home, vehicles, vacation homes, family businesses, investments, retirement accounts and similar holdings. All of these will have to be divided up some sort of way. We can help you to learn about the options that you have for dealing with these points.

The manner in which the divorce is handled depends on the circumstances of your case. If you and your ex can be civil long enough to work out the terms of the divorce, you might be able to settle things through mediation. This puts you and your ex in control of how everything is divided. If that isn't possible, we will get your case ready for trial.
