9 STEPS TO GET READY FOR DIVORCE
2. Read as much articles and books on divorce and divorce process as you can, consult an attorney if you don’t understand some matters. Knowledge about the law and court procedures can make what’s coming a little less frightening.
3. Gather information on your finances and assets, property, income and liabilities. Run a credit report and make copies of your account statements and tax returns, find the values for your cars and house. You can even make a video inventory of the house to be sure you won’t overlook something and thus you’ll have a proof of your words.
4. Assess your personal items. If there are things that matter to you, that you do not want to lose (pictures, family heirlooms, etc.) – document their existence and remove them to a safe place.
5. Change access to accounts: all your passwords for the email, bank account, pension, etc. Be sure not to use new ones that are easy to guess.
