The best thing you can do to manage your anxiety and maximize your outcome is to get organized. This resource breaks down all the things you need to think through and resolve before you can finalize your divorce. It’s the biggest “homework” assignment you’ll have in the process, but there’s no rush to complete it—and, if you can get through most (or all) of the checklist, preparing your divorce forms will be easy. Choose your state below, and download the applicable worksheet. You got this!
Top three benefits of completing this worksheet
- You can use it as a checklist to 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.)
- You’ll have all your information and documents in one place. It’ll save you loads of time later on, when you’re completing divorce forms.
- It will help you identify potential issues (i.e., where you and your spouse currently disagree on something, such as a parenting schedule or division of account). It’s a good idea to figure out early what you need to focus on in order to finalize an agreement.
