Steps To Take Before Divorce

Preparation is key if you are thinking about filing for divorce. We can guide you through the divorce process so you feel prepared and confident that your case is being handled in the most effective and efficient manner.

What can you do to prepare for divorce? Below are the steps to take before you file for divorce:

  • Collect bank statements documenting your assets, including your checking account, savings account and retirement and pension funds.
  • Document your debts, including your mortgage and other loans in your name as well as in your spouse's name.
  • Document all property owned by you alone and owned together with your spouse.
  • Document any concerns about your spouse — this can include the potential of hidden assets or if you believe he or she is unfit to care for your children.
  • Document how often you spend time with your children and your role and responsibility in their life.

Be careful what you say to others and on social media platforms about your pending divorce. Anything you post, including photos, may harm your divorce case.
