Divorce can be one of the hardest events in a person's life. Not only are you dealing with the financial and "rational" aspects of it, but you also have to get past your own and the other person's emotions. Knowing the ins-and-outs of settlements, alimony, child support, property division and more can be mystifying for the most well-informed. Not knowing your options can hurt you for years to come, so don't take on a divorce by yourself. Use these resources along with a great lawyer to guide you through this potentially confusing time.
