If you are thinking about filing for divorce from your spouse, then you
need to contact an attorney today and get started on the process. Before
you serve your spouse the papers, there are a few financial considerations
that you may want to talk over with your attorney. According to the Divorce
Resort, a popular hotel where the hotel staff and employees can help spouses
to have an enjoyable last weekend of marriage and comfort them with extravagant
dinners and luxuries as they sign the papers that will send the separate ways.
One of the first financial matters to consider is the level of trust between
parties. If you share a bank account with your spouse, is there a chance
that he or she will clean out the account and leave in a panic. If this
is a concern, then you should open an account in your name and transfer
funds that will cover at least two months bills. You should take care
not leave your spouse without any money, but you also don’t want
to fail to get the money that you need for your first few months alone.
As well, you should consider your spouse’s total available and look
at what will change when you have two households instead of one. In some
situations, the court may mandate spousal support and alimony for these
expenses that were not necessary prior to divorce because the family was
under one roof.
Another financial concern you will want to look at is the possibility of
spousal support or
alimony. While a court will probably determine the need for this, you should think
through the possibility of having to pay or becoming the recipient of
these payments depending on your financial standing. Another financial
consideration you will want to put thought into is the possibility of
child support. You will want to determine how much child support your child will need
and the resources that may be available to your children such as SSDI,
scholarships, trust funds as you calculate how much you may have to pay.
The last financial consideration that you should ponder is how much your
divorce will cost. Between court fees and the expenses of a lawyer, you
may discover that you will be spending a lot of money on your divorce case.
Depending on whether or not you and your spouse are amicable at the moment,
a divorce may drag on for years. You will want to consider how long you
will end up in a divorce case and you will need to determine whether or
not you want to pay the expenses that are necessary. You may also need
to think about the expenses of a home or vehicle or merger of bank accounts.
Determine how much it will cost to make an appointment for an insurance
policy, and more. With the help of a calculated and thoughtful lawyer
you will be able to come up with a relatively accurate budget for how
much it will cost for you to pay for your divorce and how much it will
cost you in the future as you deal with the expenses that may carry on.
