Should I Start The Divorce Process Now Or Should I Wait?

You want to get divorced, but, you are unsure whether you should start the process now or should you wait.  Getting divorced is difficult and can be a very emotional time.  However, there are very good reasons why you may want to file for a divorce as soon as possible and not wait.

If you wait to file a divorce, each day you wait, gives your spouse the opportunity to:

  1. Take money out of the bank accounts and use that money to bankroll his/her attorney or just spend it on themselves.  Any money taken out of bank account, BEFORE, someone files for a divorce will be difficult to try to get back.
  2. Take out loans or incur debt that you will be 50% responsible for.  Any loans or debt that are incurred prior to the filing for a divorce, you may be 50% responsible for.
  3. Gather evidence against you.  Before a divorce is filed, you may have your guard down.  Your spouse could be filming you or taking audio recordings of you, hoping to use them against you in the divorce.

Therefore, it may be in your best interest to file for a divorce, sooner versus later.
