A Ft. Worth family law attorney may provide suggestions about steps that you should take during the divorce process. Here are a few things that you might want to do to protect your legal rights and finances.
Create a list of property that you have in your home. Add photos of the items that have a higher value with a date stamp on the picture so that you can prove these items were still in your or your spouse’s possession.
Rent a post office box and create a new email account to make sure that your communications are private during this time.
Change passwords and pin numbers on all relevant accounts. These might include bank accounts, online accounts, social media programs, email accounts and debit cards. If you have an extra set of house or car keys, ask your spouse to return it to you.
Make copies of all important financial documents, including tax returns and bank statements.
If you are currently out of work, start making plans to get a job. Create an updated resume, research leads and start applying for jobs. If you are listed under a spouse’s insurance plan, investigate other options for insurance.
Make a narrative about your marriage, including important dates and information about separate and marital property and information pertaining to the children of your marriage. Give this narrative to a Ft. Worth family lawyer from the Hurr Law Office P.C. and schedule a consultation by calling 817-210-0150.
