Divorce is never an easy decision, but when it is inevitable there are things you’ll want to do in order to prepare yourself for what’s ahead. We recommend calling our Morris County divorce lawyers immediately when you decide to file for divorce so we can offer counsel on what to do and how to prepare. In general, for most of our clients there are three important steps you’ll want to take when getting ready to file for divorce:
- Know your financial situation. You’ll want to start gathering records of how much debt both of you owe, what your assets are, and how much is in each account. This will allow our divorce lawyers to help you determine what you might be able to expect in alimony and child support payments, as well as give you an accurate idea of your financial future after the divorce.
- Start separating yourself financially. This should include opening bank accounts and credit cards in your own name. Start saving money towards the cost of the divorce, too.
- Build your support network. Divorce is one of the most difficult things you’ll go through in your life. Having a network of friends and family around you to support you through this difficult time is incredibly important, and you’ll appreciate their support throughout the process.
