During the time you are living apart, you have a court order that outlines the rights and responsibilities of each spouse.I don't think there is any real book to prepare you for divorce, as each person's experience is so unique.But as you're headed down the aisle — that's the court aisle — of divorce, there are some things it wouldn't hurt to know as you sever your formerly "forever" relationship.Don't use friends for legal advice — meaning, don't hire a friend to handle the divorce even though your friend will cut you a break financially.
