Getting Started on Your Financial Future as You Proceed with Your Virginia Divorce

Posted on May 31, 2012 by Hofheimer Family Law

If you are working through your impending divorce in Virginia with your Virginia Beach divorce lawyer, you probably are getting a sense of your family expenses. You may wonder how you will take care of your family once the divorce is finalized.

There are some things you can start doing now to secure your future financial status.

  • Get your records straight – You will need to learn all about your family’s finances. You will want to gather records that show what you owe, what you own and your family’s budget.
  • Apply for credit cards – If you don’t have any credit cards in your own name, you need to do that now so you can establish credit and have an easy way to access money. It will help when striking out on your own to buy a home, car, etc. as well.
  • Consider a collaborative divorce – This is a private mediation between the two of you and your respective attorneys.
  • Be sure you have the right divorce lawyer – You want an attorney who is a problem-solver so that the divorce process is over as quickly as possible. This will save you time and money.
