Compromise and civility are key.
During negotiations, it’s important that you protect yourself, your future and that of your family during this process.
- Seek trusted legal, financial and personal counsel to help consider the long-term impact of decisions being made.
- Separate your finances and get the bills sorted out to keep from damaging your credit. Make credit card balances a priority.
- Work with your financial advisor and tax professional to minimize tax liabilities.
- Know your retirement and Social Security options. You could be eligible to receive a portion of your spouse’s benefits.
