What Comes Next In Your Divorce

One of the most important steps in any divorce is document collection. While in the middle of a deployment, however, it can be hard to collect the documents you need if you did not bring them with you. I can help you gather documents and make copies of them for future use.

While gathering important documents like mortgage and title information, monthly utility costs and other expenses, you can also work on the next step: getting an accurate money statement and knowing all the details of everyone’s income and expenses as well as the valuation of major assets.

Once you have a clear idea of these important figures, I can help you begin separating your assets. I can assist you in creating reasonable goals in your division process that I base on the unique factors of your divorce. From there, all that is left is resolving the divorce and moving forward with your life.
