Wow…time flies when you’re having fun…
or when you’re not.
If there is ever a time when you’re not having fun
and the To Do list is endless, it’s when you are
dealing with your divorce.
It’s kind of like writing a blog; you think you have
all the time in the world, columns ready to go, all
your facts and figures together….and then WHAM!
All of a sudden, you are behind. And need information
fast. And you’re pulling your hair out trying to get back
on top of things so that you can move forward.
First of all, recognize that you are not alone. It just feels
that way in the wee hours of the morning as you have to
hunt for that elusive piece of paper that backs up your
NFP. I find that lighting a scented candle, and playing
soothing music, the kind you find at spas, helps and can
keep you focused. And awake. Oh, copious amounts of
chocolate works too!
Everyone leaves the crappy jobs to last. And digging
through boxes of paperwork sucks. Especially if it’s old
and you haven’t got a clue what you’re really looking for.
Where this stuff will become a real issue is if you have
to produce it for your lawyer to attach to an affidavit
tomorrow. And you may not even have a copy in the house.
You may need to go back to the bank or the city tax office or
an appraiser to get the right document you need. That’s when
it REALLY sucks.
Something to keep in mind as you pull your documents
together. And if you really feel all alone, Divorce Details can help.
I’ve been there, more times than I can remember. Nothing
like getting an email at 1 a.m. in the morning day before
court from a lawyer asking if I’m still up and can find something.
Lucky for them, I was.
