For some, simply filing for a divorce in general can be overwhelming.

If you are afraid to move on in your life but are determined to end your marriage, it is important to prepare yourself as much as possible.

Sometimes, people decide to file for a divorce immediately. For example, those who find out about a spouse’s affair or are subjected to physical abuse may instantly lose all interest in the marriage and want to get out as soon as possible. In other circumstances, some people may know that they want to get a divorce, but they may decide to postpone the end of their marriage. Their marital partner may be in agreement with this decision, or they may be keeping their intentions to file for a divorce private until some point in the future.
