What to do when You’ve Received Your Divorce Decree

Sad girl with fighting parents behind herYou’ve received your divorce decree. You breathe a sigh of relief, thinking it’s all over. Now, the divorce is behind you and you can move on with your life. There’s nothing left to do.

Not so fast!

Once you get your divorce decree, there are still some things left that you need to do.

First things first—read the divorce decree carefully. You want to make sure you’re fully aware of all the details it contains, and more importantly, you want to make sure the decree is completely accurate. If you notice any mistakes, contact your Florida divorce lawyer immediately.

The next thing you need to do is take care of any tasks outlined for you in the decree. As an example, you might need to move out of your home, or sell the house, or remove your ex-spouse’s name from the mortgage. Make sure you take care of all the tasks outlined for you in a timely manner.

Now is also the time to start taking care of all the little administrative legal stuff, like updating your will, changing the beneficiaries on your insurance policies, and so on.

Only after you’ve done all these things can you really start to put the divorce behind you and adjust to your new life.
