If you and your spouse have decided it’s time for a divorce, you may be wondering what steps you need to take to prepare yourself. Taking the right steps at the right time is essential to having a smooth sailing divorce process with no bumps along the way. While there are all kinds of things to do to prepare for a divorce, we believe these are the 3 most important.
Gather all documentation
Your documents from the past few years are going to be extremely important in your divorce. Start finding your bank statements, tax returns, loan documents, mortgage statements, etc. now because it can take a while to gather them. These documents will help you to understand where you stand financially, what you owe, and what your assets are.
Build your credit
Building your credit is more important now more than ever, especially if you and your spouse have shared credit cards up until this point. Open a new credit card under your own name and find out your credit score. Taking these steps will make it easier to buy a car or house when you’re on your own.
