You may be putting off getting a divorce for fear of the expenses it could raise, but there are some reasons you shouldn't delay. Is the thought of the cost of a divorce worth the expense of staying in a toxic or unhappy marriage?
There are seven ways to know if you should get a divorce instead of putting it off. One is if there is no chance of reconciliation. If your marriage won't be saved, then staying longer will only entwine your finances further. Another is that each year, your divorce could become more expensive; you may end up paying more in alimony the longer you're married, for instance.
