Whether they're doing to save on financial costs or to benefit their kids, some divorcing couples choose to continue to live together during the divorce process. Divorce is a tricky business and, much like any relationship, each couple may choose to go through the process differently. Every couple should evaluate their options and decide what works best for them as a family, and as individuals.
Once you and your spouse have decided to divorce, it is important that you understand what your next step should be. The divorce process can be daunting, especially if you have some other factors in your relationship that could make the situation more complicated. In fact, divorces are more likely to be problematic if the couple shared a long married life, had children together, or either spouse possessed a large number of assets.
