Making the decision to end your marriage is a big milestone at the end of your relationship. If you believe that you will pursue the divorce process, being proactive can be beneficial later on. Our Coconut Creek divorce attorneys at The Law Offices of Jonny Kousa, P.L. share tips on how you can prepare for your upcoming divorce.
Finding The Right Divorce Attorney
One of the first things you should do when preparing for a divorce is to find a divorce attorney that you trust to be right for you and your family. When searching for a divorce attorney, you may wish to schedule consultations with multiple attorneys to interview them and learn more about their approaches to your situation. After these consultations, you can choose the attorney and firm you believe will be best for your circumstances.
Compiling Necessary Documents
After finding your attorney, you will need to prepare for the process ahead with them. You should begin compiling all necessary documents you may need in a binder, folder system, or digital drive for backups of digital files for the asset division process and for general use by your attorney.
You may wish to include:
- Bank statements and banking documents from the last five years,
- Tax statements from the last five years,
- Credit card statements from the last five years,
- Statements that outline any debt, such as student loans, automobile loans, and personal loans.
- Car titles and receipts of ownership of major assets, and
- Any other documents your attorney deems relevant to your divorce.
Adopting New Social Media Strategies
Using social media during your divorce may cause future complications, especially if you are planning to pursue custody of your children. When you decide to pursue a divorce, you should start to tidy up your social media and limit your activity. Try not to post about your divorce or other issues you believe may impact your divorce. Make sure the posts you are tagged in are appropriate for all audiences and you would not mind them being used as evidence in court. Your attorney can help you if you feel unsure about what you should and should not post.
