1. Consult an Attorney
It is very important that you are educated and informed of your legal rights and responsibilities before beginning the divorce process. Contact a Glendale divorce lawyer if you are considering filing or have already filed for divorce.
2. Copy All Documents
Go through all of your household files and make copies of any documents that pertain to your marriage (before and during), your children, and other documents such as bank statements, tax documents, investment statements, and any financial documents, even if you are unsure of their relevancy to your divorce.
3. Determine Family Debt
Determine any debt that has been accrued between you and your spouse and try your best to figure out a way to eliminate the debt as soon as possible before the divorce is finalized.
4. Take Care Of Your Kids
Your children should at be the top of your agenda and priority list. This is a difficult time for any child, and you want to try and make their lives as normal as possible.
5. Examine Your Credit
If you do not have any credit cards or accounts in your own name, apply for them now and use them to establish your own credit history once your divorce is final.
