When divorcing someone it isn't just any assets you have together which needed to be divided up so do any debts. So be prepared for it to take some time to sort these financial issues out otherwise it could cost you more than you would have hoped. In this article we provide some tips about how to get divorced and not lose everything when it is finalised.
Tip 1 - If you and your partner are having problems discussing how to divide up both the assets and debts you have built up together peacefully, employ the services of a mediator. You could use your lawyers but this will cost quite a bit. Instead why not employ the services of a good marriage counsellor instead.
Tip 2 - During meetings with yours and your partner's lawyer's arguments may arise and if you can stop these before they grow any worse. Again the longer you remain in your lawyer's offices arguing trivial points the more it is going to cost you. If you can limit these arguments when it comes to how to get divorced without losing everything it will help.
Tip 3 - Before you lawyer even files for divorce it is vital that you get together all the necessary paperwork relating to the financial aspects of your marriage. So sit down either on your own or with your lawyer and list all the accounts you have with your partner as well as any property deeds. Plus don't forget to include details of all debts that you have with your partner. Once you have made up this list you then need to speak to your partner about who will be responsible for what debts you have built up together.
