If you're considering or going through a divorce, here are 5 simple steps you can take that will help insure you'll have an easier time going through a divorce:

3. Get Help
Ask questions, seek out practical divorce information & divorce resources (like Divide & Thrive!), and consider therapy. You don't have to go it alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Do Your Homework
Having all your necessary documents and paperwork gathered and a clear understanding of your finances will save you time & money during and after divorce. (Not sure where to start? Check D&T's website.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Hang In There
On hard days remember, the work you're doing to prepare for divorce will help you navigate divorce more smoothly, and thrive in your life after.
