You can find free divorce advice all over...got a friend who has been through a divorce? Was it in your jurisdiction? I am sure he or she can help with advice.
Perhaps you are looking for the online kind of free legal advice? Plug "free divorce advice" into your P.C. and you will get 9,970,000 results.
My advice to you is see an attorney. My ex wanted us to do a no fault kind of process. She had our entire divorce agreement mapped out, and it was not all that unfair to me, except that I lost the house.
While the divorce process is very difficult emotionally, we were able to communicate in person. Some couples may not be able to communicate with each other directly, and a lawyer can handle that part for you.
Do you know what all the legal paperwork means? If not, have an attorney explain it for you.
Do you have your parental rights and responsibilities clearly stipulated? If it is difficult for you to advocate for yourself, then an attorney can handle that as well.
I hired an attorney and he inserted verbiage in the agreement that protected my future earnings which proved to be very important to my current financial well being...I never would have thought to include that kind of language.
I think any free divorce advice will begin with checking out what is required in your county or the county where the divorce will be adjudicated. It is a civil matter and will be handled by a county court, governed by the laws of the state in which you reside.
I just researched what is necessary in my county, and some of the forms can be printed from the county website.
The first task in my county is too download (or pick-up) paperwork appropriate to my family situation, with children, in my case, complete it, and pay the fees.
I think a case number is assigned about this time, and the defendant in the action will get a summons, which instructs them to appear in court on a certain date and at a certain place.
In my county, parents are required to attend mediation to agree to child custody, child visitation, alimony, child support, ect, and we were both required to go to a parenting after divorce workshop.
Our society is actually set up to encourage marriage and the family and divorce is a harder process than marriage simply because of that
Perhaps the next thing to plan for is the emotional fallout. Unraveling the fabric of a marriage is going to involve a grieving process that generally takes a couple of years to complete.
The stages of grieving typically follow a pattern of stages;
The problem with this nice orderly pattern is that grief is a non-linear process. I might pop into stage 4 for a bit, then 5, then 1, then 2, then back to 4, until finally back to a balance. All of that might happen daily for awhile.
It is typically a wise decision to stay out of any relationships for a couple of years. Give yourself a chance to get used to being alone, and if there are children, make sure that they are reassured that they are still loved and wanted.
Parenting styles will be very important for the children of divorce at this time. If the parents are involved in a he said-she said victim/persecutor/rescuer melodrama, the consequences for the kids can be very disturbing.
Conversely, children of parents who who make an effort to collaborate and cooperate will readjust with quick resiliency.
