What’s the first step in preparing for divorce? Getting organized. Dissolution requires tons of paperwork and several meetings with financial advisors, attorneys, and real estate agents—which can be time consuming, confusing, and stressful. That’s why it’s so important to get organized and gather your essential documents prior to beginning the process.
Assembling your financial, real estate, and personal documents before meeting with professionals provides a general idea of your overall financial health, minimizes questions and requests from the experts, and negotiates an equitable agreement. It can also help you prioritize what’s important to you in terms of assets, and set goals for your post-divorce life.
So, what documents do you need to present to your financial advisor, attorney, and real estate professional? DivorceForce has compiled a comprehensive checklist of all the paperwork you need to gather. Although the list may seem daunting, it’s doable. Take a deep breath, review it one by one, and make copies of the documents. If it’s too overwhelming, start with personal information one day, then subsequently move on to others in later days. It may take some time, but you can get it done.
