A Simple Divorce Checklist


Few life events are as complicated or overwhelming as divorce. It is not surprising, then, that while you are trying to rearrange your life, get a grip on your finances, navigate the legal system, help your children adjust to a new reality and ride the emotional roller coaster of divorce, important things can fall through the cracks. That's why having a good divorce checklist is so important. In this blog posting Karen Covey writes about 10 common mistakes that you can avoid by having a simple divorce checklist:

  • Having to Be Responsible for Debts You Forgot About (or Didn't Know Existed)

  • Having Your Spouse Read Your Personal Mail

  • Having Your Spouse Cyber-Spy On You

  • Not Gathering All of the Financial Information You Need While You Are Able to Get It Easily

  • Not Understanding How Your Parenting Time Schedule Is Really Going to Work

  • Not Dealing With Critical Parenting Issues Before Your Divorce

  • Forgetting to actually transfer retirement funds

  • Not Making a Will or Not Changing the Beneficiaries on Insurance Policies after Your Divorce

  • Not Taking Advantage of Health Insurance Benefits While You Can

  • Not Securing Irreplaceable Personal Items
