How to avoid common divorce disasters

Divorce is a word thousands of people utter each year. It is a word many don't ever want to hear their significant others say. But, it is a sad part of life. With so many marriages ending in divorce, one can only prepare for this life event by trying to limit or avoid disasters that could arise.

In a large majority of marriages, one spouse runs the household finances instead of both being involved. If your marriage is headed for divorce, learn how to handle household finances as much as you can before it goes final. This will put you at an advantage when you are on your own.

It can be easier said than done, but try not to let emotions cloud your decisions and judgment. Divorce is a very emotional time in life. It can become so emotional that property is not divided properly and money is spent incorrectly. People make poor financial decisions during divorce because they tend to hang onto things that are familiar to them.

Put together a budget you can afford. If you are used to a set lifestyle from marriage, understand that this lifestyle might not be affordable come divorce. You might have to get a job upon divorce or cut back greatly on how money is spent.

Make sure you deal with debt correctly. When you get divorced, you don't want to get stuck with the debt of your former spouse. If you have joint credit accounts with your spouse and have built up debt, begin paying down the debt immediately and as much as possible. You don't want to be stuck with debt when the divorce goes final.

Try your best to resolve divorce issues outside of court. This can be done with the attorneys for both parties and if necessary, a mediator.
