Putting Together a Monthly Budget

Anyone involved in a divorce action will most likely need to take time to complete a monthly budget. Remember that a divorce entails dividing one financial household into two. Thus, a monthly budget may be necessary to help you get through this trying financial time. Further, a monthly budget will often be required by the court if you or your spouse is pursuing temporary orders, child support, or spousal support. Regardless, careful consideration of your monthly expenses in advance will usually be invaluable to your divorce attorney in representing you in your divorce action.
