- Dealing with divorce
Divorce can be a lengthy process, but with some preparation, you'll save time and money, protect your interests, and prepare for your future. You may want to hire an attorney to protect your interests, although doing so may be expensive. A mediator or other divorce professional may be able to help you and your spouse if you're unable to resolve large issues such as child custody and support, health insurance, how debts will be handled, and the distribution of your assets. Consider getting emotional support or counseling for yourself, too.
