Are you in the very beginning stages of getting a divorce? Concerned at what your financial landscape will look like once your separation has been finalized?
One thing is for sure, many things will change after a divorce, and one of the most significant changes will be your finances.
Here are a few financial thoughts to keep in mind as you and your partner begin this difficult chapter:
- Taxes can be impacted in various ways
- Make sure to learn about ALL of your financial accounts, income streams, debts and assets
- Alimony and child support payments can quickly drain your accounts
- You and your ex will still be responsible for any shared debt
- Think with a clear head, not a broken heart
- Reach out to a financial mediator who is experienced in the divorce process
