10 ways to reduce the cost of ending your marriage

Many people stay in bad marriages far too long and move forward only when the situation becomes so severe that there is a lot of anger and resentment between the spouses. Letting things go that far makes the process of ending your marriage more emotionally and financially costly than it needs to be. It is also more harmful to the children.

Get your financial documents together before you bring up divorce

Divorce is among the hardest things you'll have to do in your life. If your marriage isn't going to work out, a divorce may be the one right thing that you and your spouse can do for one another. However, it can be complicated, even if you don't have kids.

Can you withhold visitation if your child's in danger?

As a parent, you want to do what is best for your children, but you know that you can't avoid obeying a court order. The trouble is that your children are upset and throwing massive tantrums every time they have to go to your ex-spouse's home. You know that your ex has a history of abusing others, and although you don't think that could happen to your children, you're worried based on their current mental state.

Self-care is crucial in coping throughout your divorce

When it comes to getting a divorce or even separating from a spouse, self-care is one of the first casualties. We all know how traumatic a divorce is and in our desire to simply get through the process, we may let our physical and emotional health fall by the wayside. This is one of the biggest mistakes we see as divorce attorneys serving Ohio residents.
