What is a needs hierarchy and how does it apply to divorce?

When it comes time for a couple to get a divorce, there are a lot of factors that need to be taken into consideration. It is important not to forget about your own well-being when you go through a divorce and take it into consideration every step of the way. A divorce can be overwhelming and therefore, you may want to create a “hierarchy of needs” that can help you prioritize your goals in the outcome of the divorce. It is important to go into the divorce proceeding with a clear picture of what you hope to achieve, whether it be child custody or the possession of a house, etc.

Within the needs hierarchy, you should also make a priority list for how much you are willing to spend on fighting to get what you want. In order to fight for what you truly want, you may find yourself spending a lot of money to do so. You will have to sit down with your divorce attorney and discuss your priorities, your financial situation, and a number of other important factors in order to determine the needs hierarchy that is applicable to your situation. It might not be easy and you may have to make sacrifices but it is important.
