It is typical for one or both parties in a divorce situation to be anxious to “just get it over with.”  This is a very difficult and trying time, and it is understandable that you just want to get on with your life.

It’s important to remember that the financial side of the divorce will probably impact you for a long time.  It’s worth taking a little time to ensure that the settlement is fair, equitable, and just.  It’s worth taking a little time to ensure that both sides are being honest and open about their assets and income.  And it’s critical that you understand the long-term implications of your settlement and support agreements, and that you know how your divorce will impact your lifestyle and your retirement.
