It is important to evaluate your circumstances before filing for divorce.

Kelowna Divorce Mediation on Filing for Divorce. 

Prior to filing for divorce, you will want to speak with a divorce lawyer to get a better understanding of how your separation will proceed. Your lawyer will be able to help you with cost estimates, timelines, and what documents you will need to gather. Usually, it is easier to organize necessary items before filing for divorce. Additionally, you may consider speaking with a Kelowna divorce mediation center to help resolve conflict without going to court. This can be especially beneficial to those in poor financial positions. 

The second thing you will want to do before filing for divorce is an evaluation of your financial situation. It is important to know where you stand financially going into a divorce. It is no secret that separating from your partner is expensive. Determining the debt of you and your partner and the value of your combined assets is extremely helpful. While you work to determine these numbers, try and find supporting documents like bank statements and proof of ownership documents.
