Your wedding day was nothing short of magical. You were looking forward to spending the rest of your life with your best friend. You spent years getting to know each other and one-day things changed. You were no longer as happy as you had been on your wedding day. Divorce is imminent and you have no idea how to navigate the situation.
You don’t want to lose your best friend but the marriage just isn’t working anymore. The two of you finally decide that it is time to end the relationship. Now you will need to sit down with a New York divorce attorney to properly end the partnership.
Not Your Partner Anymore
Divorce, no matter how amicable, is difficult for everyone involved. As any NYC divorce attorney will tell you, emotions run high and who you thought as your partner can quickly turn into your worst nightmare. Your initial instinct will be to stay just as close as before and talk like best friends but your NYC divorce attorney will advise you of the opposite.
Your New York divorce attorney will advise you to begin to distance yourself from the other party, not to cause conflict, but to protect you during this time. You will need to come to grips with the fact that even though you may be ending on good terms or as a mutual decision they are no longer their partner.
We do encourage you to keep it cordial during negotiations especially when children are involved. However, do not think of them as your best friend or partner anymore. This can often be the hardest part for some divorcing couples.
Don’t Wait Too Long
Coming to the decision to divorce is not easy and it should not be taken lightly. Once you come to the decision to divorce do not put off the process longer than need be. Without a prenup, the courts will split marital assets using equitable distribution. This means that anything that was acquired during the marriage before filing for divorce is up for grabs. This includes things like:
- Your car
- Your house
- Your pension
- Our business
- Corporate rewards
- Social security benefits
Our New York divorce attorney advises you to file for divorce as soon as possible to stop the proverbial clock on the possible property that can be included in the divorce agreement. Your NYC divorce attorney will be able to help you determine what to do in order to protect your assets.
Moving on And Moving Out
Many divorcing couples feel that since they are no longer together they should be moving out of the marital home. An NYC divorce attorney will advise you to stay in the marital home for various reasons unless there is a safety issue involved.
Social Media is Not a Judge
Social media has become a thorn in the side of every New York divorce attorney. Anything you post can be used against you. So be wary of what you publish.
