What To Do If You Are Going Through A Divorce

If a divorce is in your future, now is a time when you could benefit from a consultation with an experienced family law attorney. You are in a vulnerable position both emotionally and financially, and the sooner you take steps to protect your interests, the better off you will be.

Here are some important things to remember:

  • Avoid social media. Before you post anything on Facebook or any other social media website, consider how it would appear if introduced as evidence in your divorce case. Divorce attorneys routinely obtain posts from social media sites as a part of discovery.
  • Protect community assets. Spouses may take vengeful actions on the cusp of divorce, such as selling community property and draining joint bank accounts. One way to protect yourself is to file for divorce. In Florida, a divorce petition contains a number of injunctions to prevent the disposal of community assets.
  • Cancel joint credit cards. You may want to cancel joint credit cards and obtain a new card in your name only. Your spouse's debts may be considered marital debts and subject to division.
  • Gather records of separate property. If you brought separate property into your marriage, you will need records to show that. If you cannot show that an asset is your separate property, it may be considered marital property.
  • Talk to a lawyer before moving out of the home. In Florida, you are not abandoning your marital home by moving out. Still, you should not take any significant step without legal advice.
  • Timing of important events. Whether you are starting a business, launching a new business venture or filing bankruptcy, seek legal advice about whether you should do it before or after your divorce.
