When it comes to making financial decisions, both you and your ex-husband must c-operate with matters.

Financial considerations and credit-

Protecting ones credit is an important aspect while on financial considerations for a divorce. You should work towards maintaining your credit rating at all costs.

Some steps to maintain your credit rating are as under-

  1. Acquire a copy of your credit report. In some states one is entitled to get a free copy of a credit report every year. You should try and get a copy from each of the major credit bureaus as the information from credit bureau to credit bureau would not be the same. After you acquire the report, you should ensure that you go through every single detail which is mentioned in the report. Make sure that you understand every section in the report.
  2. At anytime if you feel that the information on the credit report is wrong, you must inform the credit bureau. The credit bureau would send you a form to fill and verify the same information with the creditor.
  3. Ensure that all your bills are paid on time. You and your ex should concentrate on paying off debts which are jointly held. Liabilities cannot be changed even with the help of a divorce decree. You would be made to pay the debts, if your ex fails to do so.
  4. In some cases you can also place a fraud alert on your credit report. If you do not require instant credit, you can notify the credit bureaus to attach a statement to your credit report; the same statement would request creditors not to approve of any new accounts without contacting your first. With this you can protect yourself from fraud and other people opening credit accounts in your name.
  5. You should keep in mind that public record information such as bankruptcies and tax liens would also appear on your credit report.

Financial strains during divorce are known to be quite major and strenuous. During divorce you should be able to negotiate fairly and evaluate what you own. At all times you must be aware of your state laws in regard to property division.
