Once The Judge Rules, It’s All Over Right?

We agree that according to the law, a divorce is final when the judge makes a ruling; however, there are things you need to do to ensure all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. If your original attorney was found by searching google for “cheap divorce lawyers near me,” you may have to put a little extra work into your post divorce to-do list. Your list may include questions like “who ensures the final paperwork is done?” or “what do these deadlines mean?” Are you aware there are deadlines in your divorce judgment that you are required to meet when separating assets, debts, credit, and estate items?  Have you finalized housing? When and how will the physical assets be divided? How are you and your ex going to communicate?  Phone? Email? Text? How will interactions with the children work out? It’s essential to pull together a list of items, and add a timeline for each item, so everything is accomplished in a timely fashion, and nothing is forgotten. 

Will My Divorce Lawyer Provide Me with a To-Do List?


While a post-divorce checklist will be your responsibility, a big consideration in choosing your Miami attorney is their ability to communicate. You’ll need an attorney to successfully articulate your wishes to the attorney of your spouse, as well as to the courtroom. A good attorney should answer all of the questions you have along the way, as well as cover the final divorce decree.  Don’t simply search online for “cheap divorce lawyers near me” and choose the first one you find. Take your time and find a firm like ours. We are a firm who cares about the well-being of our clients. We know going through a divorce is one of the hardest things you will ever have to go through, and we want to help. We will walk you through every aspect of your divorce and stay by your side all through the post divorce to-do list.



What Are The Top Things I Need to Hit On My To-Do List?


Organization is key to successfully managing the post-divorce judgment transition.  First, go through your divorce decree listing the dates and deadlines you need to meet.  Ask your attorney if you have any questions on the divorce documents. In general, make sure you address items to divide, such as physical and financial assets, debts, credit, and retirement accounts. Create a list of what you need to set up for your new financial situation (bank accounts, credit cards, and such). If you haven’t already, establish your new living quarters (transferring homeownership if applicable), including the children’s items.  Identify how you and your ex are going to co-parent the children, and get it in writing. This includes who will be responsible for them, when, who will take them to doctors, pick them up from daycare, etc.
