Legal issues are often the first step in a divorce proceeding, as couples work out how to divide assets and decide on custody arrangements for children. These negotiations can be lengthy and contentious if there are disagreements about what is fair or who should get what property. Even when these issues are resolved amicably, there's still the paperwork to complete and sign off on. This process alone can take months as lawyers review each document before they are finalized.

Financial strain is another major component of a divorce. Couples have to divide their assets and also need to pay lawyer and court fees which could put them into debt. After all debts are settled, couples will need to start fresh by setting up separate bank accounts and budgets. With additional costs associated with starting over such as finding a new place to live and replacing furniture this can be financially daunting for many people going through a divorce.
