As you work through the end of your marriage, you need to make sure that you are taking steps to improve your future. Now that you are going to be single, you can focus on things that make you happy. This might take trial and error on your part since you have to figure out the direction of your life now. One thing that you can do right away is to set goals for your life.
You need to have at least one main goal that you are working toward. This long-term goal can be divided into smaller ones that you can work to achieve in the short term. As you meet each one, you can set a new one that puts you a bit closer to your ultimate goal. We know that this might not be very easy but taking the time to do this can set you off on the best path for your needs.
As you work through the property division matter, you need to think about your future. It is all too easy to think about what you need right now and to dwell on the emotional attachment that you have to some of the assets that need to be divided. This won’t help you reach your goals. We can work with you to find a solution that sets you off on the right financial footing.
Many people don’t think about how their finances have changed since the end of the marriage. Just remember that you will be supported only by your own income. This could mean that you have to make some cuts to your expenses. You can always try to bolster your income later to make up the shortfall so that you can return to the things you had to give up.
