Going through a divorce isn't easy, especially if you didn't have any idea that your ex was going to end the marriage. If you are in this position, you might need a crash course in getting a divorce. The first thing that you should know is that your focus should be on rebuilding your life. It is easy to fall into thinking that you should get even with your ex, but this might make you miserable and take away too much of your energy. Instead, focus on yourself and let your ex deal with the consequences of ending the marriage.
Once the divorce is filed, you will have to answer the petition. This is when you can make your position known. It is important that you know how to do this because anything you say now can affect your divorce settlement.
After you answer the divorce petition, you will have to divide the assets that were accumulated during your marriage. You need to think carefully about what options you have for the property division. One of the biggest assets that you will have to deal with is likely your marital home.
