Consult your attorney and address issues like division of assets, child custody and alimony. First keep this matter to yourself before telling it to your friends and people out of your family.
The first thing you need to do after deciding to divorce is schedule a consultation with afamily law attorney. The attorney will explain how the laws in your area apply to the particulars of your situation. Bring as much information as you can about assets, debts and income to his meeting..
