A lot of times when someone is going through a divorce, they talk with family members, friends and people who have been through, but you cannot make assumptions based on their experiences. Every state has similar divorce laws. Similar, yet some laws are very different. For example, divorce filing fees are different depending on the state you reside in when you file for divorce. Also, child custody laws; if children are involved are different in certain states. Be proactive and do some research in the state you are divorcing in, and you will be more prepared when you speak with your attorney.
If you have been married 5 years or less, this is called a Short-Term Marriage and divorces proceedings are different then Long-Term Marriages (5 years or longer).
Most importantly, do your due-diligence and be proactive in the divorce process. By understanding your budget pre and post-divorce budget, you will place yourself in a more secure financial position moving past the divorce.
