Now that my divorce is final, what should I do? The first instruction that is given to every client is to retain a hard copy of the Judgment of Divorce as well as any order that accompanied it. The second instruction is to note any time frames listed within the Judgment of Divorce. These are deadlines that actions must be taken by. Put them on your calendar and set a trigger date for at least two weeks in advance if possible. This will prevent you from missing any important deadlines. The final instruction that we give all our client is to update their estate plan and beneficiaries. If you need help with updating your estate plan, we can help do that as well.
