Couple of things to make sure

  1. Make sure your current farm is healthy, if their is any issue pending try to resolve it. I mean Heatlh check of farm. right down the Farm configuration.
  2. Create new Services account in the new domain.
  3. Back up all the SQL Databases
  4. Now Setting permission for new service accounts on SQL Servers and DB.
  5. Now Shut down SharePoint related Services on the Server i.e Timer service, IIS, admin service
  6. Change the server domain.
  7. Now updates the accounts for the app pools, services and farm admin account.
  8. you have to migrate the user from old domain to new domain.
  9. test the farm

Also check this option: https://yagyashree.wordpress.com/moving-sharepoint-server-from-one-domain-to-a-different-domain/

this is if you are using the same server in 2nd domain, but if you want to use new servers then things are much easy.

  • create and configure new SharePoint farm on new domain
  • backup and restore the content db from old farm to new farm
  • migrate the user to new domain.
  • test it
