If you’re currently going through a divorce, the holiday season can be especially tough. With one year ending, and a new one right around the corner, now is the perfect time to reevaluate where your life is currently, and where you’d like it to go in the future. In this blog, our Las Vegas divorce attorneys share a few New Year’s resolutions for individuals who are newly divorced.
Update Your Will, Trusts, and Insurance Plans
If you’re stepping into the New Year with old wills and trusts, it’s likely that they do not accurately represent your current life. If you named your spouse as a beneficiary in your will, trust, or any insurance plan, it’s important that you update it so it reflects your current wishes.
Divorce doesn’t have to be costly, but it’s always a good idea to pay special attention to your finances after your divorce is finalized. In the coming year, make it a point to keep track of how much you’re spending each month and compare it to how much income you’re bringing in on a monthly basis.
Be Cooperative Co-Parents
If you and your ex-spouse have children together, it’s important that you both hold a united front and act civil with one another in the presence of your children. Co-parenting requires a considerable amount of compromise, and divorce can be especially difficult for young children to process.
