3 Tips for Asking for a Divorce

So, you’ve made the major decision to end your marriage. Obviously, this decision didn’t come easily, but by now, your mind is set and you know that it’s the decision that’s in your best interest.

Now comes the really hard part – asking your spouse for a divorce. There’s no way around it, really. This is going to be hard, but if you follow these 3 tips, you can at least make it a little easier.

  1. Have your ducks in a row—Before asking for a divorce, you should have already started preparing for your case. That means speaking to a divorce attorney, gathering documents, etc. So, don’t tell your spouse you want the divorce until you’re ready.
  2. Don’t tell anyone else yet—Aside from your lawyer, your spouse should be the first to know you want a divorce. If you tell friends or family, word could get out, and if your spouse finds out from someone else, things could get really ugly.
  3. Be civil—This is an emotional time, but you need to do your best to be kind and civil when telling your partner you want a divorce. Keep it civil.
