Your old calendars can help you during divorce

No matter how great a marriage in Texas begins, there’s no guarantee that this union will last forever. If divorce is on the horizon, it’s beneficial to be prepared. However, you might be surprised to learn that an old calendar can be a part of your preparation for the process of ending a marriage.

Watching over expenses

One of the major post-divorce changes involves expenses. Unless you were the only income earner while married, transitioning to a single-income household can change your future financial situation. Look through your old calendars as you plan to live off a single income. If you’re like most, this calendar lists your bills and how much you owe each month. Planning with this information can help ensure you avoid spending all your money.

Tracking parent and child time

If you and your ex-spouse share children, you’ll both need to resolve child custody matters. Child custody involves parents working together to devise plans to spend time with their children. A previously used calendar lets you know important commitments, some of which may clash with established custody arrangements. Your calendar may also help you continue the traditions of family vacations with your children.

Rebutting false claims

Unfortunately, not all divorces go smoothly. Understandably, emotions can and often do run high during the divorce process. If this stressful environment causes your former spouse to make false claims against you, having a calendar handy could prove any falsehoods wrong.

Keeping your old calendars can be extremely helpful, especially during divorce. The information in calendars helps you move forward with a clear understanding of future dates and payments.
