You've known your divorce was inevitable for a long time. In fact,
if you're like many couples, you may have even been planning to get
a divorce once the children were more able to easily understand your decision,
or once you were more financially able to handle life on your own. It's
possible that when you first began discussing your divorce with your spouse,
you started putting a plan together so that your divorce would cause the
least amount of strife possible for your family. Back then, getting a
divorce seemed like it was still far away in the future.
As you know, time flies. Perhaps your agreed-upon time has arrived, and
now you're ready to follow through with your divorce plan. Even if
you have agreed to everything you can think of, it's still a good
idea to discuss your uncontested divorce with a Baton Rouge
family law lawyer who can offer you the legal advice you need.
There is a growing population of couples who decide to wait until their
children are grown and out of the house before they begin divorce proceedings.
For those couples, their primary concern is making sure that their children
don't have to suffer unnecessarily while their parents drag them through
a divorce. However, it is still important for you to make sure that you're
getting what you are entitled to. Even if you've discussed your situation
with friends and family who has all gone through uncontested divorces
before you, it's still important to talk with an attorney.
When you first began thinking about getting a divorce, it's possible
that you made some agreements that sounded good to you at the time. However,
since that time, it's possible that your financial situation has changed.
It's also possible that the laws have changed. You've taken great
care to approach your divorce is a responsible and sensible way. It makes
sense to speak with an attorney to be sure you've done everything
you need to do to ensure a smooth procedure.
