Streamlining your Divorce – Taking Care of the Details

Even under the most peaceful circumstances, divorce can be difficult. The process of untangling two lives can be exhausting, both physically and emotionally. An experienced divorce attorney can help you sort through some of the more mundane procedural aspects of divorce so you can focus on emotional healing and caring for your children. While you are engaged in divorce-related legal issues, take the opportunity to put your life in order.

Your attorney can help you with these tasks:

  • Parenting plan – Setting up a shared parenting arrangement with your ex takes a great deal of time and energy. Always keep your child’s best interest in mind when making decisions that affect him or her.
  • Name change – If you decide to change your name, ask your attorney to submit the request to the court along with your divorce agreement.
  • Finances – You will likely need to provide your attorney with a detailed list of your household income and expenses while dividing your assets, determining child support needs and allocating responsibilities. Use this opportunity to create a post-divorce budget so you can build your new life in a practical manner.
  • Estate planning – You probably need to change your will, appoint a health care surrogate and a new legal guardian for your children. While you’re doing that, check over any retirement assets you own and designate a new beneficiary. Review your life insurance policies as well.

Your divorce attorney may not be versed in all of these areas of law and finance, but can refer you to a colleague for anything he or she does not do. For more information, call the Buffalo, NY Law Offices of Randy S. Margulis at 716.886.9600 or contact us online.
