You know divorce is the messy and painful end of a marriage.
However, despite divorce being everywhere, the details of the divorce process are often a mystery.
Here are some sensible actions you can and should take as you plan and prepare for your divorce.
As soon as you know (or maybe even as soon as you have a suspicion) that divorce is in your future, change every one of your passwords, passcodes, and PINS on every account and device you have.
Get Your Credit Report
Studies indicate almost 25% of married people spend money or conceal debt they don't want their spouse to know about. Is your spouse one?
Obtaining a credit report will help you figure this out earlier rather than later.
Forward Your Mail
Protecting your communications during your divorce is important.
Sometimes a soon-to-be-ex-spouse will be able to intercept your mail if you do not change your address.
One solution is to get a P.O. Box and have your mail forwarded to the new box.
