Keep Good Records
You will need to make sure you have all your records, including credit applications and all financial records. These will be vital for any divorce proceedings. This includes any debts you have that are shared as well as assets acquired together during the marriage.
Cancel Shared Accounts
Make sure to protect yourself by cancelling all shared credit card accounts, checking accounts, and savings accounts. If the divorce judge grants responsibility for some of the credit card debt payments to your ex-spouse, keep track of the proceedings.
Change Beneficiary Details
You may want to change your beneficiary in your will and insurance policies. While you are at this, be sure to work out between you both and the kids who owns what if anything happens to one of you, otherwise your spouse could unintentionally get everything.
