Divorce can be an emotionally and financially challenging life event. In the face of the many possible adjustments divorce entails, things may be overlooked.
The most important task you can do is get your finances organized. From a financial perspective, divorce means taking all the income previously used to run one household and stretching it out over two residences, two utility bills, two grocery lists, etc. There are other hidden costs as well, such as counseling for you or your children. Divorces also may require incurring one-time fees, such as a security deposit on a rental property, moving costs, or increased child care.
