Divorce can be an incredibly stressful experience for most couples. Emotions run high, and you may not understand how your state manages to determine property division, child custody, child support, and other matters included in your divorce agreement. Before you begin, here are a few useful pieces of information to know.

- Do cooperate as much as possible with your ex
- Do support your children through this process (if you have children)
- Do research on where to file and what you need to discuss with your ex
- Do close all joint credit accounts
- Do get credit accounts in your own name
- Don’t lose your temper with your ex
- Don’t make plans to take a job out of state or move out of the country until your divorce is final
- Don’t violate any temporary custody or visitation arrangements
- Don’t hide assets among friends and family to keep from your ex
