Practical Tips for Starting Your Life After Divorce

The legalities and emotional burden of divorce are difficult alone, but thinking about navigating the next chapter of your life may seem like an impossible challenge. Whether you’re in the very beginning stages of a divorce or ready to start rebuilding your life tomorrow, Boeller Law, P.A. is here to help. We understand that the prospect of life after divorce can be intimidating, which is why we’ve put together a list of important things to consider to get you on the best start possible.

  1. Collect all the files from your divorce. Retrieve your case’s paperwork from your attorney and keep a physical and digital copy in a secure location. These serve as proof of your new single status and will be important for bank and tax records.

  2. Begin journaling. A journal is an excellent tool in helping you grieve, but it’ll also be a way for you to track progress.

  3. Update your driver’s license. We know, the DMV is probably the LAST place you want to be, but it’s necessary if you plan on moving and changing your last name.

  4. Pay attention to insurance changes. You should update your marital status for life, disability, health, auto, and home insurance. We also recommend researching how divorce affects those policies.

  5. Revise your will. In the event of an untimely death, you may not want your ex to have the legal rights to your assets and finances. Make sure to revise your will with an attorney if that is the case.

  6. Keep a civil relationship with your ex for your children. When a marriage ends, the spouses are affected, but so are the children. If it’s possible, try to maintain a civil relationship.
