Filing for divorce is a life-altering event for you, your children, and possibly your entire extended family.
It is a decision that should not be undertaken without first consulting with an experienced family law attorney.
In many cases, a spouse can gain an advantage, or minimize a disadvantage, by engaging in divorce planning before the divorce case starts. For example, the timing of the filing of the divorce petition can have significant effects on your legal rights and obligations, such as whether you have to share your bonus with your spouse, whether those stock options are marital, and whether you may be liable for alimony (and, if so, the amount you have to pay).
There are other important factors to consider, some of which may or may not apply to your specific situation.
