Are you about to get a divorce or currently going through one? Here are some things to consider from Scott Birmingham, CFP® and Jeff Tomaneng, CFP®, who both hold their CDFA® (Certified Divorce Financial Analyst) certification and help individuals going through a divorce with their financial plan.
Ø Use an attorney who specializes in divorce or family law.
Ø Have money in the bank for typical life emergencies and to cover moving/housing expenses.
Ø Look at what expenses will look like down the road – what happens when alimony or child support ends?
Ø Set up a journal or cash transactions
Ø Freeze joint credit cards
Ø Consider if all asset divisions are equitable – some may have additional expenses associated with them
