Going through a divorce will put your finances front and center in your life. Did you spend too much and rack up debt? How's that retirement looking? What's your career status? Are you due for a raise? Is it time to move to a new position or stay put? Have you been sticking to a budget?
Divorce will turn your finances upside down a bit, and it can really hurt, especially if you or your partner racked up debt, but it can also be a good starting point.
Now is the time to make a budget, set financial goals, work on reducing credit debt, call creditors and see if you're eligible for reduced interest, open a retirement account if possible, or make a goal to work toward this. Now is the time to make a plan for yourself and stick to it.
