What Are My Options for Divorce?

I’m sure you’ve heard the statistic that 50% of marriages end in divorce. But I bet you never thought your marriage would be one of them.

No one does.

And you didn’t take this decision lightly.

But what you may not have realized at the time was that this would not be the only important decision you’d need to make. It was actually the first of many…

The next thing you’ll need to decide is how to get a divorce.

So what ARE the divorce options available to you?

And how do you choose the option that’s right for you in your particular situation?

If you've decided to divorce after 20 years or longer, you're probably feeling very alone. Like you're the only couple in the world facing divorce after 50.

But despite what you hear about the falling divorce rate, getting divorced after 20 years of marriage - even after 25 and 30 years for that matter, is not only common these days, but it's on the rise.

Let's take a closer look at how divorcing after 20 years of marriage (or more) can impact the specific financial, emotional and parental issues you'll face as you go through your divorce.
