How To Pack for a Trip?

Cindy Best

You might be thinking about divorce but have no idea where to start. One thing I have learned over the years is to make a list, even for things that seem repetitive, like packing for a trip. You know you need a toothbrush and an extra pair of shoes. But you need to know where you are going to decide whether you need a flashlight or your Swiss Army knife. Where is the list for my divorce?  What do I need to decide and split up? I like to use a list of the decisions that need to be made and perhaps this will help you also.  This list will get you started: you will need to decide when and how to split up:

1. the house or apartment lease
2. the bank accounts
3. the savings accounts
4. the credit cards
5. the cars and car payments
6. any other debts besides credit cards
7. property including furniture
8. whether there is any dispute over sole and separate property
9. is spousal maintenance on the table
10. the children’s decision making and where they live and when they travel between parents
11. retirement accounts
12. pensions
13. investments
13. whether you have a pre nup and what does it mean
