Divorce can be a lengthy and tedious process. There are even side processes that may get on your nerve. But you don’t always have to look at these procedures as annoyances or unnecessary events. In fact, you can even use the leeway provided by the lengthy procedure to do what you need to do—the type of things that many usually forget.
Whether you are already talking to a divorce attorney in Colorado Springs or are just planning your move to a new city once the divorce is finalized, here are some of the things you should do in between.
Revise your estate plan
You may have made your last will in which your spouse will receive a lot from you. But now that you two are separating, you should change the provisions in your estate plan as soon as possible. It is up to you if you still want to leave something (that is if the resolution is amicable and not destructive).
Get your items
If you are planning to leave the home that your spouse or their family owns, you should make sure that all your items are packed away. Take all these with you as soon as possible. Otherwise, it will be awkward for you to return to their home just to get your belongings once the divorce is finalized.
Change all your passwords
There may have been a chance where your spouse knows all the passwords to your cyber-properties—from social media accounts to your PayPal. Keep them from snooping around or worse, from stealing, by changing all the passwords of your online assets.
The process of divorce may make you forget about the things that need to be done. Avoid such mistakes by thinking ahead. To do just that, make sure that you have a comprehensive checklist.
