You are still trying to get over the fact that your marriage is coming to an end. You may be feeling emotionally spent, and unfortunately, the thought of having to go through a divorce trial makes you feel even more anxious.
You've always prided yourself on keeping organized and maintaining thorough records regarding all financial goings on in your household. In fact, your spouse and friends have often teased you in the past for being one of those people in Colorado who save every single receipt even for minor purchases, such as a few toiletries or pack of chewing gum. You never minded the jesting, however, because in the end, you figured it was a win/win situation.
During the divorce process, you may have questions regarding whether your spouse has rights to an inheritance you acquired while married. For instance, your uncle might have passed away and left you assets in his will, but did not mention your spouse even though he knew you were married.
Facing a divorce can be stressful. On top of dealing with the emotional aspect of ending your marriage, you may also be understandably worried about your financial future. A spiteful soon-to-be ex can exasperate these worries.
You may understandably be dreading going through a high-asset divorce. After all, figuring out what to do with the house or your other real estate property, or what to do with the family business, can be overwhelming.
