Property division matters must be carefully planned

Dividing property during a divorce is often complicated. The more assets and debts that are associated with the marriage, the more difficult it is going to be. You need to make sure that you are familiar with your marital assets so that you have an idea of what kinds of divisions might be made. We realize that divorce isn't always something that you can prepare for ahead of time, but it can make life easier for your and for your lawyer if you know what you own.

Evaluate the possibilities for property division in divorce

Property division during a divorce is something that you have to take seriously, especially if you have high-value assets. Understanding the property division laws that are on the books in Pennsylvania is one thing that you can do before you embark on the process that can help you make a plan.

A holiday divorce isn't going to be easy emotionally

Divorcing at any point in the year is an emotional journey. When you figure out that you need to divorce during the holidays, those emotions might overtake you. This can be a very dangerous thing to deal with because this is a time when you need to be able to make decisions based on clear thoughts, not emotions.

Watch your actions during divorce, your children are watching

Parents want to give their children the skills they will need to succeed in life. When you are in the midst of a difficult divorce, you have to think about how your actions will impact your children. Even when you think that they aren't picking up on certain things, there is a good chance that they are paying close attention and taking things to heart.

Take your heart out of the divorce process

A divorce is something that impacts your future. If you aren't prepared for a divorce, the impact might seem even more devastating. One day, you might have thought that your marriage was doing great but the next day you find out that your marriage is over. We know that this is a hard place to be in, but we are here to help you.

Be careful with what you post on social media accounts

It seems as though social media is a primary source of communication these days. If you are going through a divorce, it might be best to avoid the temptation of airing out the grievances regarding the situation on these public websites. Even if you have your profiles set to where only friends can view them, there is always a chance that someone will share the information you post with your ex either through word of mouth or through screenshots.

With alimony, on either side, don't be too proud

Alimony can be tricky. Making payments to an ex isn't fun. Receiving them may not be, either. People don't want to stay connected, and alimony ensures that they are for as long as it is owed. Very quickly, for many people, it becomes more about the psychological impact than the financial one.

Should I get an annulment instead of a divorce?

In Pennsylvania, you can petition the court for an annulment or a divorce. Some people may believe that the only time an annulment is needed is after a particularly romantic trip to Las Vegas. However, that's not quite the truth. An annulment can help you in some ways that a divorce may not.
