During a time of divorce, the couple, children and other loved ones are affected greatly during this transitional phase. In order to prepare your case, you need an attorney by your side in order to gain a strong understanding of your situation. Once you and your spouse are prepared to proceed you can start preparing for the divorce. Our attorney’s at MAS Law Firm have helped numerous clients and provided them with how to handle the steps before divorce before the separation. We at MAS will give you the support you need when preparing for a contested divorce and uncontested divorce.
There are a few basic steps that need to be adhered to when preparing for a divorce. You should first start by compiling all your financial records. It is important to get all of your documents together for use later on just in case there is any discrepancy in the opposing party’s information.
Some of the necessary information that you will need to provide includes full names, addresses, phone numbers, and Social Security numbers of both parties as well as your children. You will also need to know the date and the county the marriage took place. In the event that either spouse was previously married, documentation of the divorce will be needed. A copy of a premarital or post-marital agreement will also need to be provided. It would also be a good idea to be aware of any debts by reviewing your credit report.
Along with getting the necessary documentation together, there are other steps you should look into taking when getting ready to enter a new chapter in your life. One way could be by opening a P.O Box to route your mail. Divorce can frequently distract you from taking care of yourself and the children, but taking the time to plan out your future now can stabilize it later on. Getting a credit card or opening up a bank account in your name can also help you prepare for the future. Start putting money aside for legal fees so that in the middle of the process you don’t find yourself in a difficult financial situation in the middle of the process. Also, prepare an inventory of your personal property, real property, and debts.
