Because you must DOCUMENT EVERYTHING. Can I say that again. Please document everything. The two best and most important pieces of advice I can give you is see a lawyer so you know where you stand as soon and start documenting everything as soon as possible.
The divorce process can be lengthy and may take years to get through the court system. No two separations are ever the same, however you will need documentation which at times be complex and labour intensive to gather.
You may be seeking income support. If you have children you may need to keep a record of finances and expenditure for children. To establish a monthly payment it is necessary to document expenses and provide evidence for which nights the children sleep at each of the parent’s house (known as heads-on-beds). This is required regardless of whether the payment comes from the government or directly from your ex-partner and is likely to require ongoing monitoring as life arrangements change and life evolves.
In order to financially separate you need to divide your asset pool and this is impacted by custody arrangements and your percentage of care of the children.
The Divorce Source App allows you to track who has the children, for what percentage of time throughout your separation and is an easy way to keep track of your percentage of custody which can give you peace of mind pre and post divorce.
Childcare arrangements often change and if communication breaks down it can be time consuming to note all the changes. The Divorce Source App allows you to upload screen grabs of text messages or to make notes on the fly that may impact your financial settlement.
The Divorce Source App allows you to keep everything documented, organised and easily accessed all in one place. We like to think of it as your mobile diary and documenting tool.
The Divorce Source App gives parents the tools they need to get organised through the separation process.
