Before divorce, there is always a period of separation. This is a tough time (understatement) with a lot of emotions. Do any of these sound familiar? Anger, sadness, frustration, confusion, fear, relief?
You aren’t alone. Although your situation will be as unique as you and your family, the tasks won’t.
- If you have children you need to create a parenting plan.
- If you own a home, you need to decide if one of you will keep it or if you will sell it.
- If you have assets or debts (hopefully more assets) you will need to decide how these get equalized.
- You need to think about how things like cars are registered, how to value your pensions and what to do with family debt.
Whether you are married or common-law, you have tasks to do and decisions to make.
