There are a lot of misconceptions about divorce out there, many of them fed by inaccurate or misleading coverage in the media. One, admittedly dramatic narrative of divorce as a hostile battle between two people who hate each other has become the norm.
So it's always refreshing to see accurate coverage and useful advice from the media. The Huffington Post recently published a divorce "to-do list" that's full of useful, accurate information.
You can read the full list here, but the items on the to-do list include:
- Follow the money
- Protect your beneficiaries
- Plan ahead
- Create a file of debts and assets
All excellent advice, and these are the sorts of things we always recommend to potential clients when they discuss moving forward with divorce mediation. These sessions are much simpler and easier to navigate if there's ample documentation for the financial issues involved.
The only other piece of advice we would offer is to urge you to keep calm once divorce seems likely. You want to maintain a professional approach to what is essentially an economic problem. That way, our attorney-mediators can help you find the right solutions.
