The decision to divorce is something that no couple takes lightly, because they know how drastically it will affect their way of life. Not only will you lose the person you thought might be your lifelong companion, you could lose many of the things that are a part of your married life, such as your house or more importantly your children. A divorce is a split between two lives, but it is very difficult, if not impossible, for that split to be clean.
While the courts do their best to ensure that the divorce settlement is fair to all parties involved, they can only determine what is fair based on the information they are given. This means that if you don’t manage to properly present your side of the story, you may lose out on many of the things you deserve in a divorce settlement, such as assets, child support or even involvement in the lives of your children.
The important thing to remember is that divorce is a complicated process. Even if a divorce is amicable and both parties believe they agree on everything, there are some issues that you might not be aware of, such as assets you had forgotten about or did not know of.
