Step 3 in Preparing for Divorce: Do it Now!

Last Update: October 26, 2016
In this continuing series on preparing for divorce, there are some simple things you should do for yourself – not for the divorce – before the process begins.
Before your divorce makes you entirely independent, take care of those nagging “must-dos” in your life that for one reason or another have been delayed.
- Take care of necessary medical and dental issues now – before your health insurance may change – not only for yourself, but also for your children, if any.
- Have a technician go through your car with a fine-toothed comb to identify any repairs that may be needed so that you are not caught off-guard with large expenses after your divorce.
- If you are keeping your house, do the same – get an inspection, go through and make a list of necessary repairs, get an assessment on your furnace and AC, and be sure to take a look at the roof and windows – knowing what to expect goes a long way in preparing for your financial future.
