When you have personal property to protect, there are four different things that can affect it. Disasters, like natural disasters, debt, your death and divorce can all impact what happens to assets you've accrued over time. It might be hard to avoid all the things that can affect your assets, but divorce is one of the few you have control over.
When you're ready to file for divorce, you might be considering moving on with another person. Even if both you and your spouse agree to a divorce, it may be a better idea to wait to become sexually involved with another person until your divorce is finalized. Why? You could be accused of adultery. If you were planning on filing adultery claims against your spouse, becoming intimate with another person can even cancel out that claim.
Whenever you have to decide on the custody arrangements for your child, there are bound to be some disagreements or key issues raised. You'll need to consider where your child will live, who will pick up or drop him or her at school, decide on visitation times and plan for how you and your spouse will work together to raise him or her. If you want sole custody and the sole right to make parenting decisions, that's another issue that you might want to raise with the court.
If you've signed a prenuptial agreement and think it shouldn't apply to you any longer, you might be right if you can point out one of the following issues with the contract.

If the court finds your argument is legitimate, then your prenuptial agreement may be thrown out.

Asset division, alimony, child custody arrangements and other parts of your divorce need to be discussed.
