Divorces could start early in 2018

For many people living in Kentucky, January is a time of new beginnings. In some cases, this means making the decision to leave a marriage that is no longer working. While divorce is never easy, there are some things that spouses can do to make the process less painful and financially devastating.

Individuals who are considering divorce would do well to scale back or even cease participation on social media platforms. This is because social media posts can be used as evidence in divorce cases. Even seemingly innocent posts may be misconstrued by the other spouse or his or her legal counsel. Ceasing or scaling back on social media posts can be announced as a "New Year's resolution" to friends and family.

Spouses should also pay special attention to their finances during this time. It may be necessary to begin separating marital finances, which could include closing joint accounts, collecting records of debts and assets and establishing credit in one's own name. Checking credit reports on a regular basis is also a good practice during the first year or so after a divorce.

Finally, someone who is going through a divorce should make self-care a priority. This may include seeking counseling, improving dietary habits or joining a gym. Taking care of mind and body can help the spouse get through the rough spots that inevitably emerge at the end of the marriage. Self-care is particularly important when children are involved.

Couples who are thinking about separating could benefit from consulting with family law attorneys. A lawyer may be able to review a client's case and make recommendations regarding financial issues, child custody and ongoing support.
