    Answered . If you have reached the conclusion that divorce is right, and best for you, then you need to immediately speak with an attorney to discuss the specifics of your divorce case. You need to act immediately to protect yourself, and if you have any, your children.

    Courts will look at assets such as a 401K, house, cars, and even credit card debt to determine which person from the divorce will get what property.

    It is important that you speak with an attorney right away to discuss the specific issues to your case, your attorney can better advise you on what steps you should take.
