Divorce can be one of the most difficult processes for people to go through. Like any breakup, you can feel heartbroken and sad, but on top of it, you need to go through legal proceedings to painstakingly divide all of the assets you amassed together. If you are parents, you need to draft a plan for how you will both continue raising your children, but separately. You might need to work out arrangements for retirement, health insurance, student loans, and other issues that you would have handled together had you remained married.
However, some divorcing couples are able to end their marriage amicably. Just because the spouses no longer want to stay married doesn’t mean they need to act like enemies and make it impossible to reach agreements with each other.
