When I finally decided I was ready to tell my ex-husband that I wanted a divorce, I had no idea what to do after that. It was like I had already jumped the huge hurdle that had been standing in my way, towering over me for so long that I was just relieved I got over it without falling on my face. The thought of what came next didn’t strike me until a day or so later.
At that time, all I knew about getting divorced was that I needed to hire an attorney and that we would probably end up in court. That was a really scary thought! I had no idea that there were other alternatives to getting divorced other than litigation.

I’ve summarized the four divorce alternatives below with a link to the complete article at the bottom.
