People often think of divorce as a battle, with one spouse set against the other. While this may happen, it does not have to be that way. You can take a team approach.
In fact, if you have children, many experts believe that a team approach is the best option. You and your spouse can admit that you are both unhappy. You can acknowledge that you need some sort of change. You can then work together to find a solution that puts your children first, rather than yourselves.
Even if you do not have children, a team approach can help with a high asset divorce. These cases often become long, complicated and expensive as people fight for as much money as they can get. You can make the process shorter and less stressful if you work with your spouse to split things up between the two of you.
Now, you may find it impossible. Even if you want a team approach, it takes two. A spouse who refuses to work with you can still make this case as complicated and difficult as possible. This can make it harder to obtain the assets you deserve and to get the time with your children that you desire. Remember that your spouse has a fair amount of control over how this all goes.
Whether the divorce becomes contentious or not, make sure you are well aware of your legal options. You need to make sure you know what rights you have and what steps the two of you will need to take as you end your marriage.
