My two best tips are: seek counseling, and gather all the documents that you can.

Studies have shown that divorce is the most traumatic part of life, save the death of a spouse. Families and friends are wonderful and supportive, but they're not professionals. I advise all of my clients to seek professional counseling.

The other tip is to gather all the documents that you can. Make copies of three years of income-tax returns, bank statements, credit-card statements, pension statements, and so on: all evidence of the economic life of your marriage. This will make it easier for your divorce attorney and cheaper for you.
