What can you do?
Fortunately, you can help yourself and your case by taking a few precautionary steps. The following tips may help you work toward an amicable divorce:

- Consider seeking help from a therapist if you find yourself having a hard time. Any major life change can cause emotional upheaval, and having someone to talk through your emotions with may be helpful.
- Make an attempt to speak with your spouse to try to come to a resolution. If it is feasible to work together, it will assist you in resolving this difficult process sooner; saving you time and money.
- Try to keep your composure while in court. This will help you think logically, rather than emotionally.
