With us all “sheltering-in-place”, many people are thinking about divorce. If you are considering divorce, use this downtime to take these important steps and answer these questions:
1. Communicate with your spouse!
Is the marriage really over?
Have you considered marriage counseling?
What do you want if the marriage continues?
What do you want when the divorce is finalized?
Are you and your spouse on the same page and can file together?
2. Gather Important Documents
Tax returns, pay stubs
Real estate and retirement information
Estate planning documents: Especially powers of attorney. You certainly don’t want the person you are divorcing to make medical or other important decisions for you (during a pandemic)
