If you are going through a divorce, you may not know much about it. If you buy a home, you might not know much about that, either. If you buy a car, you might not know much about that. So, what do you do when you venture into “buying” a product or a service? I suggest that you do your homework. Homework and learn about the product, the service, the law, the facts, the pitfalls, the detours, the problems, the issues, the good, the bad, and the ugly. But you have to do your homework. You would probably not go onto car lot and buy the first car you see. You would not buy the first and only house you look at. So, when you go through a divorce, you might consider doing your homework. Learn about the process, learn about the issues, learn about the cost, research the best attorneys, know what you need and what you can afford. And, as you go through the process, keep learning. You don’t need to be an attorney to know the basics and the ABCs of divorce law. Do your homework and you will be empowered and feel better about what you are experiencing as you go through this difficult process.
