Top 10 Tips for Massachusetts Divorce Planning

Posted almost 2 years ago. Applies to Massachusetts, 1 helpful vote



Plan Your Work

Think of this as a job. Plan your work, and then work your plan. Outline the steps you need to complete -- in order. Give yourself specific plans, organize those plans, and make sure you give yourself measureable and time-based goals for each.


Start Collecting Documents

Whether the documents you collect relate to financial history (bank statements, credit card statements, tax records, etc.) or artwork/school-work from your children, expect these things to slowly disappear once the divorce process begins. If you need to put a strong case forward, you'll need documents to backup your claims.
