Divorces can be more than just an emotional battle. They can also be a legal battle. Even though divorces are not that uncommon, many people find themselves unprepared to handle the legal challenges that come with it. I was one of those people. While working with my lawyer, I learned that divorces go beyond deciding who gets what. There are other long-term legal consequences that you might have to handle. After talking with friends, I discovered that many people are in the dark about the long-term effects. I started this blog to help others understand what divorce can legally mean for the rest of your life.
