The process for divorce varies for each couple, and there is no easy set of right and wrong answers. Many couples will attempt a trial separation period long before divorce proceedings even begin. This can give the couple a chance to see if they really are happier and healthier living apart, and helps to establish some of the norms around financial responsibilities and custody. Other couples may start divorce proceedings while still sharing the same house, although this can get a bit dicey due to the level of conflict inherent in divorce. Each spouse must retain an attorney in most cases, and your divorce lawyer will help you understand the process and laws in your state.
