A Simple Divorce Checklist

October 30, 2015

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
