3. Be Smart

Most states are “no fault” states, meaning everything that is deemed marital is divided up 50/50. It's best to be fair and divide up everything 50/50. This eliminates time and money spent having the lawyers figure it out for you. Lawyers also base their retainers on how much you make, how much is at stake, and how willing you are to fight for it, so make sure they know you know the law means 50/50 and you want to waste as little time as possible figuring out what that means for you.
