How do we handle the financial issues in our divorce?

sean (Guest) on Monday, October 22 2012, 01:09 PM
We have decided to get divorced. She is currently living in our home in Brookline. We’ve figured out a schedule in regard to the children but don’t know how to handle expenses and splitting assets. Where do we go from here?

    The best method is for both you and your wife to fill out a court financial form (I can send them to you or you can download them from our Web site), and figure out precisely what the income and expenses are for your wife and your children, and for you and the home where you are living. Then try to work out a fair and informal arrangement between you and your wife. When you decide to file for divorce you or your wife may file what are called “Temporary Orders” for support. However, you should plan carefully for Temporary Orders as they can often become the basis of a permanent order in a divorce settlement.
