Evaluate Your Future Before Committing To Divorce


Did you know you can Evaluate Your Future Before Committing To Divorce?

How would you feel if you could?
More relaxed?
More confident and empowered?
Very likely at least one of these.

Take a few minutes to explore that possibility. We're talking about a full and thorough evaluation, not a 15 minute overview from an attorney giving you a free consult to try to retain you.

Since 90% of every divorce is financial, why not investigate what your post-divorce life would look like. Makes sense.

Yet many women have paralysis analysis and sadly do nothing. If you're one of them, and you're unfortunate enough to be flung into a  full on divorce without at least having your records organized for the evaluation, you could be facing disappearing financial information, banking passwords changed, and disappearing money. While you're scrambling to get the financials together for your attorney, there's always an emotional distraction he throws at you. If you have children, custody is usually the tool they choose for emotional terrorism. So even if you decide to hold off now, you'll be prepared for whatever might come in the future, even if he files for divorce first.

Divorce Tip - Strategic Step

This is something my clients do that helps them retain power over their future, for themselves and their families. Once you file those divorce papers, no matter what state you live in, your attorney tells you that you can no longer make this change. All my "pre-filing" clients are guided through this strategic step.

If you decide to divorce, or if you believe your husband might spring it on you, the very first step is to change your Last Will and Testament and all the associated documents. Here's why...

Face it, if you're going to split up, whether it's now or in the future, do you want him to have everything you own? Maybe you'd rather it go to children or siblings. This is the opportunity to get this taken care of.

With that goes the Power of Attorney. If you need someone to make financial decisions for you, again, do you want him to have everything you own? The medical documents include the Medical Power of Attorney and the Living Will. If you're considering divorcing him, even if it's just maybe, do you want him to make medical decisions, sometimes lifesaving decisions for you? This is just one tip to give you an idea about how these strategies are truly unique.



Holiday seasons can become emotionally and financially overwhelming for women considering divorce.

Don't let it blind you and potentially jeopardize your best outcome.

Speak to someone who has been through it, has the battle scars to prove it, and can help you avoid the stress and overwhelm you are likely feeling right now.

Think about how detailed it took to plan your wedding and that was just one day. Now your lives are intertwined and it will take even more planning to uncouple yourself. Be smart and do something now, before you find yourself sucked into the bottomless divorce vortex that all those horror stories are based on.
