When you're involved with a divorce, calling a lawyer can just feel like another tough obstacle to confront. But seeking professional help can actually give you some clarity about the whole situation and make the process go more quickly. We're here to help you get it done the right way so that you can get back to doing what you enjoy in life.

Following the usual steps, divorce often comes after a period of legal separation and signals the formal termination of your marriage. If you're sure you want to go this route, printing out a Divorce Worksheet is a good way to hash out the details so that you and your spouse can see where you each stand. It makes a huge difference if you can find a way to agree on things.

Depending on your state's laws, you can then enter into a Divorce Settlement Agreement and file for a no-fault divorce. If you're still not seeing eye to eye with your spouse, you might want to consider mediation or finding a lawyer. And when you can't find your spouse, there are some special steps you can take.
