Here is a link to an article at MSN Money entitled 10 Steps to a Money Smart Divorce. The article generally contains good advice. Several of these steps are things that I routinely advise my clients to do (particularly the one about getting a copy of your credit report).
One word of warning though – one of the suggested steps is to close joint accounts. This can often be a good idea, but many jurisdictions in Alabama enter a standard Pre-trial Order of Court in every divorce case which expressly prohibits either party from closing joint accounts. So, before you do so, make sure you consult with your lawyer and that you understand any outstanding court orders that may prevent you from taking the proposed action.
