How can a woman get control of the financial issues of their divorce?

If you didn’t normally handle the bills and account statements in your marriage, a good first step toward getting control is to understand what kinds of finances will be involved in your divorce. We have a printable checklist that goes through all of the many financial documents to start gathering – including tax returns, pay stubs, credit card statements, bank accounts, mortgages, and retirement account statements.

Your attorney can examine these with you and discuss how this information will be used in your divorce. Part of the divorce process is about planning for your secure financial future. In some cases, women may want to fast-track their financial literacy by meeting with a financial planner. This professional can help you develop a monthly budget, invest money wisely, and plan for a retirement. They can also advise you on other important issues such as whether or not it makes financial sense to own a home or rent.
