Divorce is a major life event. That isn’t hyperbole, either; this event will change your life as dramatically as a death in your immediate family, the birth of a child, or a wedding. Divorce affects much more than just your emotions, though; your finances will also be deeply impacted. Many spouses cite potential financial problems as the reason they are hesitant to file for divorce, but you’ll be prepared for anything with the guidelines we provide below.
In other words, you need a caring and experienced attorney (like you can find at Easterling Law) who can effectively represent you and your needs during the divorce process. One thing you can do today to help accomplish this is by cutting back on expenses wherever possible.
Additionally, we strongly recommend classifying expenses as essential and non-essential. You need to know the exact amount of income you and your kids need to survive post-divorce.
If your spouse has one or more of the above documents and refuses to share the information with you, no need to panic—a quality family law attorney will be available to procure the information in discovery (one phase of a contested divorce).
No matter what your financial situation looks like, you will be able to make it work. Through smart and precise planning (and plenty of help from a knowledgeable family law attorney), you will get through your divorce with minimal stress. Easterling Law would love to be part of it.
