If you and your significant other are experiencing problems in your relationship, and have tried everything you can to salvage it but know that divorce is imminent, there is a number of things you can do to prepare for the long battle you may have ahead of you. Whether you live in Huntington, NY or anywhere else on Long Island, are a man or a women, you will need to get your financials in order, especially if you and your spouse were on the same plans, and also have to figure out child custody (if applicable) and living arrangements, all while keeping your emotions in check. Divorce can be daunting, stressful, and sometimes the hardest thing someone will go through, but the proper preparation will at least ease the stress a little bit.
Getting your finances together is the most important thing to do when preparing for a divorce. You should immediately gather all of your financial statements and reports as it will help you throughout the divorce process and even will help you to save money. It may be wise to open a new account in your own name, and put some money aside in this account in case something happens where you will need it. Cancel all of your credit cards, and with the help of a lawyer such as Simonetti & Associates, change your beneficiaries on life insurance policies, IRA’s, and other legal documents. You will also want to figure out what, in terms of property, you will try to keep.
