Divorce might be one of the most difficult things you have ever experienced. Being ‘done’ with the process and having your divorce finalized might just be one of the most rewarding things that you have ever felt, as you know you will be able to move forward with your life in many new ways. However, divorce doesn’t just mean the end-all of everything you have been through and your attorney can still help you with many other aspects that will be especially important only after divorce is over.
Issues to be Addressed Only After Divorce
Following your divorce, you will need to sit down and think about many aspects involving child custody if you have children. After the divorce is finalized, you are permitted to still modify child custody, support, and the terms of visitation between you and the other parent. Of course, adjustments can also be made at any point along the way. Many changes might come up now that you are through divorce, such as changes in a parent’s work schedule, parents relocating, child’s preferences and many other issues. Your attorney is one of the most skilled people for the job when it comes to making necessary modifications and filing for support now that things will be different on a financial level in your home.
You also want to focus on financial issues, especially those involving credit cards. You don’t want to have joint accounts anymore, including credit card accounts you might have with your spouse, as these issues can get particularly messy. Along with splitting your assets, now you might also have to change your car title if you and your spouse own it together. These joint issues should always be discussed.
Other aspects that you need to focus on immediately include taking care of your 401K, establishing a long-term budget, and more. Speaking with an attorney can get you on the right track when it comes to your future now that you and your spouse are no longer together. We wish to stand by your side during these difficult aspects when you have many things to figure out on your own.
