The best thing you can do to manage your anxiety and maximize your best (divorce) outcome is to get organized. This resource breaks down all of the things you need to think through and resolve before you can finalize your divorce. This is the most amount of “homework” you’ll have in the process but there’s no rush in completing it AND, if you can get through most (or all) of this checklist, preparing your divorce forms will be easy peasy (that’s a technical legal term). (ok, maybe not). Choose your state below and download the applicable worksheet. You got this!
Top 3 benefits of completing this worksheet
- Use it as a checklist so that you make sure your final divorce agreement (or order) resolves everything (it’s no fun to have to come back to court or the negotiating table a few years later because you forgot to account for an asset or debt).
- Gather all your information and documents in one place. It’ll save you loads of time later when you are completing divorce forms.
- Identify where there might be issues (i.e. where you and your spouse currently disagree on something like a parenting schedule or division of account). It’s a good idea to figure out early on what things you need to focus on in order to finalize an agreement.
