Financial tips for divorcing men

As a husband and father, you have some unique considerations when it comes to getting a divorce. This is especially true if you are the main breadwinner and/or oversee the household finances. Divorcing can be complex and quickly become a hostile situation between you and your ex.

Thankfully, you can end your marriage and split your belongings much more simply if you follow some tips and the advice of your lawyer. Here are some financial guidelines for divorcing men to keep in mind. 

Be honest

Before you start negotiating about who gets what, you will need to provide a clear report of all marital assets. If you manage the money, this should be relatively easy for you to accomplish. Just make sure every little bit of property may be subject to property division, so you need to account for everything. 

If you fail to include assets, you risk derailing the process or getting an unfair settlement. Even worse is hiding assets. You may want to get revenge on your ex, but attempting to hide assets can have serious consequences, including legal punishments and a loss of credibility. 

Forget the small things

Believe it or not, couples spend thousands of dollars arguing over belongings that do not have much value. You may really like that recliner or entertainment system, but if you can easily replace something for a few hundred bucks or less, it is not worth bickering about with your spouse. Fighting over things out of spite or sentimental reasons will only make your divorce costs skyrocket. 

Do not make impulsive decisions about your life

Getting a divorce will understandably make you emotional. You will grieve and feel hurt. Treat this process with delicacy and avoid making huge choices for the time being. Do not decide to move to another city or switch jobs right away. Try to keep the status quo as you adjust to your new life. Simply make a post-divorce budget and stick with it until you are in a stable situation.
