Is it absolutely necessary?
Any time we discuss the possibility of divorce, it is important gather information and consider it carefully. It is important to ask questions. Consider alternatives. Is a divorce going to solve the problems? Can you and your spouse work through the problems? Is reconciliation an option? How will divorce affect your finances and your family?
What matters most?
Sometimes divorce is the only way. When it is, it is important to focus on what is really important to you. Divorce is confrontational by definition. You must protect your assets. You must protect your relationship with your children. Sometimes you have to be aggressive.
Avoid unnecessary conflicts.
I believe that you can protect these things without being unnecessarily combative. Many people waste time, energy and money fighting over issues that are not really that important to your core objectives. Unnecessary arguments can cause collateral damage to your finances and to your relationships.
