When divorce comes as a surprise, you don't have time to prepare for what's to come. This is a challenge, especially if you are the one being told to leave the marital home. If you are in this position, you should make sure that you know your rights and options. We are here to help you learn about them.

As unconventional as it is, some people choose to remain in the same home for a while during the start of the divorce process for financial reasons. If you choose this option, you should be prepared to move into another bedroom and to have a discussion about how certain expenses will be met.

There are many other things that you must think about at the end of the marriage. One of these is what is going to happen to the marital assets. All of these need to be divided between you and your ex. You should make sure that everything is accounted for. If you have a high-asset divorce, you might need to have a forensic accountant review everything to ensure that there aren't any hidden assets.

Even when you are dealing with a surprise divorce, you have to ensure that your rights are being protected. This isn't always easy; however, learning your options for each step of the case can help you to feel less stress. By focusing on your case as soon as you know the divorce is in progress, you can have as much time as possible to think about the various options you are presented with.
