Embarking on life without your significant other often proves difficult in and of itself, but if you also squandered away half of your savings on your divorce, the process may prove even more troublesome. At Hope Family Law P.C., we recognize that not all divorces must cost you a substantial sum of money, and we have helped many people in your shoes disentangle their lives from their former spouse’s without losing everything they have in the process.
According to Forbes, there are several tactics you may be able to employ during your divorce to lower the amount of money your split ultimately costs you. One such tactic involves opting for mediation, as opposed to a litigated divorce. When you mediate your divorce, you are able to avoid hiring your own attorney, and instead, you and your ex both work together with a shared third party who helps you work through the same matters you would in litigation.
It may, too, help you save money on divorce-related expenditures if you schedule regular visits with your therapist while your divorce is ongoing. It may surprise you to see just how much venting to your therapist, rather than your attorney, who may charge by the hour, may be able to save you.
You may also find that you are able to save yourself considerable money simply by behaving like an adult. It may sound silly, but insisting on getting the last word or bickering over every minor asset is surprisingly common and costly.
