Getting finances together for a divorce is no easy task. Taking advice with a grain of salt, tracking all expenses and preparing for future expenses, and gathering documentation are key to making the transition smoother. Preparing for resistance from the other side is also important as emotions will be high and each side will want to win. Put a hold on making any large financial decisions and be careful with spending and saving. Seeking professional financial advice is also a good idea when preparing to go through a divorce.
