Getting Divorced in Scottsdale: Practical Considerations
In all of the confusion, emotion, and concern surrounding your decision to pursue a Phoenix divorce, you may not yet have given a thought to what your life will really be like post-divorce. Let one of our friendly Phoenix divorce attorneys handle the legal proceedings while you consider taking a few practical steps to protect your financial future:
- Will you need to go back to work or change jobs? Start thinking about what your needs will be, and update your resume now, even if you don’t submit it right away.
- Are you due for your annual physical? It might be a good idea to see your family doctor and dentist while you are still covered by your spouse’s health insurance plan.
- Is your car in good shape? Having reliable transportation is important, especially if you will be commuting to work or transporting the kids to school and activities. Take a few minutes to take stock of your ride now.
- Do you have any joint accounts? Set up an individual account and freeze any joint credit card accounts you share with your spouse. If you use direct deposit for your paycheck, be sure it is no longer being applied to a joint account.
