You might have heard before of an "amicable divorce". Those spouses that are most apt to reach a friendly conclusion to their marriage are few. It's generally only those who've been married a short time, have little assets and no kids that can amicably resolve their differences. The more property or children that a couple has, the more likely that they are to have to litigate their divorce.
A visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent is often a big part of a parenting agreement. If you have visitation rights, it's critical to understand what you can and can't do. This will help you avoid a mistake that could upset your children or your ex-spouse.
You know that divorce will alter your life in many ways, so taking steps to protect yourself is of utmost importance.
