Start Looking At Yourself As An Individual

During your marriage, your and your spouse’s interests were aligned. With divorce on the horizon, that is no longer the case. You must protect your future in regard to property division, spousal support (alimony) and other divorce-related matters. Start documenting what is in your bank accounts. Inventory your personal marital property and other items so that you have the information you need during divorce proceedings.

You Won’t Get Everything You Want

You can spend a fortune fighting over “pots and pans,” but that is probably not in your best long-term financial interests. Concerning property division, it is better to determine what truly means the most to you, financially and emotionally, and focusing on obtaining those items.

Watch What You Post On Social Media

A seemingly innocent post can easily become “Exhibit A” in divorce proceedings. A photo from a party could be spun as evidence of bad parenting and impact a child custody case. An account of a vacation could give the impression you are a lavish spender. You never know who is watching you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms. When in doubt, don’t post.
