Why it is critical to respond to divorce papers promptly

“You have been served.” These four words can be scary, infuriating and even heartbreaking. Whether or not you expected your spouse to file for divorce, receiving your divorce papers can be a highly emotional event. Once you receive your divorce papers, you may want to burn them, bury them or simply ignore them. However, it is vital that you respond to them promptly, as a failure to do so could lead to truly negative consequences.

Thinking about downsizing in the wake of your divorce?

Downsizing is generally treated as a negative word in American popular culture. It is associated with job loss, property loss and general loss of wealth. However, in the context of divorce, downsizing can be a positive experience. Many individuals find that they cannot maintain their married lifestyle in the wake of divorce. Others find that they simply want to pursue a different lifestyle. In either case, downsizing can be a liberating experience.
