Don't destroy everything when you end a relationship!
You don't need to destroy everything if you are ending your relationship. Neither of you will come out "winners" in a courtroom battle. Only the attorneys will win...they will get paid a lot of money if you want to fight your divorce battle at the courthouse. Generally, everything filed at the courthouse is open to the public to view -- your friends, family, neighbors, strangers, even your children. Don't air your dirty laundry in public.
There are other options available to you if the two of you are willing to work together to resolve your disputes in a confidential and safe setting.
Research mediation or alternative dispute resolution.
Other popular terms are amicable divorce, peaceful divorce, or collaborative law.
