Here are a few things to do or think about before filing for divorce:
- Get Your Documents in Order – Make sure you know where your financial documents are, such as tax returns, investment statements, and bank statements. Your spouse may try and hide these from you once they realize the divorce is happening.
- Divorce Your Expenses – Remove your spouse from any of your credit cards or debit cards so that they do not rack up a giant bill for you. It is easier to stop that from happening before the divorce rather than trying to get your attorney and the Judge to clean it up later.
- Save that Money – Divorce can be expensive, depending on how much you and your spouse fight with each other. Make sure you save enough money for the courts, the lawyers, but also for yourself.
