When is the best time to get a divorce? That may seem like a silly question because you might wonder if there is really ever a good time to get a divorce. The fact is divorce is tough, but depending on when a person decides to end his or her marriage, it can be more difficult at some points in life than others, including for people right here in the Clinton Township area.
One of the things that can make divorce difficult is when a couple owns a business together. It can also be hard even if just one of the parties owns a business. Splitting up income in divorce is often a tedious task, but knowing when to make the split final is a key in how the division goes. Fore example, if a person knows that his or her business is about to hit it big, then he or she might want to make the divorce final before the big break occurs.
Likewise, if a person knows that his or her spouse is about to hit it big, then he or she may want to stall as long as possible in order to be eligible for some of the pending windfall. Another key factor to consider is one’s financial stability, which is often better after a couple has been married for many years and the kids are grown and gone. Divorcing during financial troubles can make the decision that much more difficult.
If your marriage has reached the point of no return, then perhaps it’s time for you to consider meeting with a knowledgeable divorce attorney who understands how to maneuver through the many aspects of divorce, including property division.
