Whether you’ve got your Separation Agreement in hand or you’re still working toward getting it done, there is a lot to think about when you are going through the separation process. So here’s a helpful list of practical things that need to get done. It can feel overwhelming. So just choose one or two things a day to accomplish and before you know it, you’ll have got it all done.
Depending on your situation there may be more you need to add to this list but this should cover the main areas of your life. Some of these things can be done before your separation agreement is in place and some need to wait until you’ve worked out how you’re managing all of these things moving forward. Be careful not to deny access to things that your ex-partner has a right to access. That could get messy and create a lot of unnecessary conflict. That being said, if you’re worried about protecting yourself in the interim, talk to your bank, your credit card company and so on to determine how you can do that.
