Divorce is what it is. Three quarters of marriages end in divorce, making it one of the most common experiences of all Americans. Unfortunately, the process is stressful, and those going through it feel isolated. The legal system related to divorce is confusing and varies by state and county. Divorce attorneys appear to be expensive. Those going through divorce are emotional and frustrated by their spouse, their isolation and the inability to get answers. Many divorces are settled amicably between spouses simply by reviewing a sample divorce settlement agreement. However, many attorneys have created form kits and information packets that they sell for a reasonable price as well. This information can empower you, whether you are the spouse who feels out of control of the situation or not.
