What Should You Do Before Filing for Divorce in Sterling Heights?

Getting a divorce is a serious matter that can have repercussions that will affect you, your spouse, and your children. Before filing for divorce in Sterling Heights, take all the time you need to make sure this is the right decision. Remember that the court is able to grant a divorce even if only one party wants to end the marriage.

Gather All Relevant Financial Documents

Put together your financial records, including bills, mortgage statements, car payments, and any other expenses that will be relevant throughout the divorce. 

Make copies of everything to show to your family law attorney. Include information on all accounts you have and share tax returns, and anything else that will help your lawyer understand your financial picture.

Determine Your Child Custody Goals

If you have children, they might have been holding you back from getting the divorce because you have not decided how you will handle child custody. Put in writing your work schedule, your kids’ schedules, and draft a potential schedule for child custody. 

Put in Place a Support Network

The divorce will undoubtedly take an emotional toll on you and your children. Surround yourself with relatives and friends who will provide you with some valuable, needed support during this difficult time. Speak with friends who have gone through this experience and let everyone know that you will be counting on their moral support and advice.


What is included in a divorce complaint?

The complaint will be the first document you will file as you initiate the divorce process. In it, you will include identifying information such as both spouses’ names and those of the children and everyone’s date of birth. If you are filing, you will appear as the plaintiff and your spouse as the defendant. Despite these titles, both parties have the same rights.

The petition will also include the state and county where you are filing and a case number. Include your address to verify that you are filing in the correct jurisdiction and state how long you have lived there.
