The more I'm thinking about it, the more I'm considering it. I really, really, really can't afford an attorney right now and I know H can't either. We've already split all personal belongings, he's agreed to take his name off the deed to our house, and I agree to pay for the car that I drive (both our names are on it). I've moved my finances to another credit union and I'm taking my name off our joint account.
I really think we can come to terms with everything on our own. The only sticky situation might be custody arrangements, as I think H might feel like he's "entitled" to more than every other weekend and alternating holidays. Which, btw, isn't even how often he sees his son right now. I'm extremely flexible and would let H takes DS on an off weekend if he has a family event or something like that, and H would do the same for me...at least he did over the holidays this month. As sort of a "buffer", I'm telling H that I won't be asking for court ordered CS, as he has been really responsible in paying for his half of daycare. I know this could change at a drop of a hat, but I also know that by telling him this it will help "keep the peace" during all of this. He's the type of person who doesn't like when he's forced to do something...like having the courts say he has to shell out money every month to me. Trust me, I have no problems filing for CS if he decides to start flaking out, but for now I feel like this is the right move.
So, if you did your own divorce, do you recommend it? Thoughts?
