A divorce is always easier without any kids or assets but let’s face it, with six out of every ten relationships getting pregnant before marriage this is very unlikely.

By arranging appointments with the lawyers to discuss the legal and financial situation and try to mediate towards an outcome is an essential part of getting through a divorce, by keeping things mediated and professional it will keep the raw emotional stress to a minimum. In most divorce situations both parties will feel like they are losing more than they are gaining whether this is financial or simply time with children, remembering that neither party is winning is important.
