Social Distancing, Coronavirus and… Planning for Divorce?

We are facing very uncertain times at the moment. With the WHO, CDC and the Federal Government’s coronavirus guidelines on social distancing and recommendations against large gatherings, you may find yourself at home working remotely, or being stuck at home confined with your significant other and/or family, with seemingly no escape in sight. There is a way, however, to put extra time at home to good use (other than catching up on Netflix or good books) when it comes to planning for divorce. This time of home isolation and social distancing is a great opportunity to try to plan for the future if divorce is something you are contemplating or seriously considering.

Planning for Divorce When You’re Stuck at Home

(1) Gather and Organize your Financial Documents.

(2) Get a Head Start on Filling out a Financial Affidavit Form

(3) Organize your Thoughts on Property Distribution

(4) Organize your Thoughts on Child-related Issues (Allocation of Parental Responsibilities and Parenting Time)

(5) Organize and Prepare to Divide Personal Items

(6) Research Attorney Options

(7) Schedule a Phone Consultation with a Divorce Lawyer
