Have You Been Rejected by Social Security Disability?

I have been working with social security on behalf of clients for many years, and I understand why certain applications for disability are rejected and what you can do to be approved. This blog will help you understand the process of assessing a disability claim and specific steps you can take to increase your chances of being approved for disability payments. When you are hurt and cannot work, you may need legal help to get disability payments. This blog can help.

3 Ways To Prepare For A Divorce

Preparing for a divorce can be a lot of work. There are very few people who actually get divorced on a whim. Instead it is a process, even years of a couple trying to work on their marriage and contemplating divorce. If you are contemplating divorce from your spouse it is important that you do some things to prepare:

1. Get Out Of Debt

Many couples have a good amount of debt accumulated during their marriage. Although there will be debts such as the house, and perhaps some student/education loans, which are hard to completely pay off, many couples have consumer debt.

When you get divorced the courts will divide the debt just like they would the assets. This can be very confusing and hard for the couple.

For example, consider if you have a credit card and in the divorce one spouse is put over the payments of that credit card. If your spouse stops paying the bill on that card for whatever reason it doesn't just hurt them, it hurts you too.

They could ruin your credit score because you are responsible for that card as well. This is why it is best if the two of you can work to pay off debt before you actually start the divorce process.

2. Open A Separate Bank Account

Once the divorce has been filed things might get ugly. It may be hard to access funds in a joint banking account, and you are going to have separate expenses than your spouse. This is why it is best if you have a separate credit card and bank account that is only in your name.

If you anticipate a divorce, and anticipate that your spouse may be difficult, you should set aside money. This might have to happen in small increments leading up to the divorce, but you should be putting money aside.

3. Down Size

Once you are divorced you are going to have a lot of extra expenses. You will have legal fees from the divorce, and you will be paying for two residences instead of just one. This is why it is better to start downsizing early. This will make it easier on the kids and on you.

This way your children won't have to deal with a divorce, move houses and/or change schools all at once. It might help to sell the house, move into something more affordable and get the kids acclimated into their new environment before you start the divorce process.
