Unhappy I'm nervous and afraid

I've posted a few threads on here. I am ready to file for divorce and get on with my life. I'm very nervous and afraid of getting it all started. I think I found the right forms online and have done a lot of research, but I'm afraid that if I do something wrong it will somehow screw the whole thing up. Anyone who has been through this I could really use some advice. I have to file in MA because that is where we lived together and where he still resides. I plan on trying to find a good mediator to help figure out everything. We have a lot of debt and a house mortgage among our belongings to go through. I feel kind of like not knowing where to start or the right avenue to go through.

Can you contact MA school of Law or UMASS Dartmouth has a new law program and see if there are any last year law students that can offer any advice?

Or, many attorneys will allow you to consult with them without charging a fee.

Are you still on speaking terms with him? If so, try to inventory everything and try to come to some agreements. That way, things can go quicker and a mediator will have an easier time brokering a formal agreement. i would definitely try to at least consult with an attorney in MA before you start out on this process. Gather a list of questions and get a sense of where things need to go.
