DON'T PRESS SEND

This is likely the most difficult period you have experienced in your life.  There will be times when your former spouse will offend you, be unkind and you will want to speak your mind.  Be sure to do so in an appropriate manner.  Refrain from sending mean spirited letters, text messages and emails to your soon to be ex.  This may make you feel great temporarily, but will become embarrassing evidence later on. Attorneys are great at saving messages, massaging them, packaging them, and then presenting the result in court many months later. Don't provide the other attorney with an opportunity to embarrass you.

ENFORCING YOUR CHILD SUPPORT ORDER

The Department of Child Support Services will assist you, at no cost, with enforcing your child support order.  To begin the enforcement process, they will need a copy of your support order, your ex's name, home and work addresses, and his social security number. They can then enforce the child support orders through various means such as:
  • wage withholding,
  • intercepting tax refunds,
  • reporting delinquencies to the credit bureaus,
  • suspending or revoking driver's, professional, or occupational licenses,
  • filing liens against bank accounts, property, or settlements,
  • passport denial,
  • court fines or jail time.

OBTAINING CHILD SUPPORT

To get the most out of your initial appointment with your attorney bring your current tax return with you to your initial appointment, as well as current paystubs for yourself and your husband if you have them.  The attorney can run support calculations during your appointment and advise you of the amount of support that you will be entitled to. Getting child support established during a separation or divorce is important because both parents have a responsibility to support their children. Unfortunately, this is a sore point for many parents who pay support. But they need to realize that the main purpose of child support is to maintain their children's standard of living after a divorce or separation.
It is not a form of punishment for the paying parent, nor is it a free ride for the receiving parent. It's about doing what's best for the children.

WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE FILING FOR DIVORCE

  • Have you gone to marriage counseling?
  • Have you and your spouse taken the time to talk and isolate the real problems of the marriage?
  • Do you really listen to each other or just nag, complain and tune out?
  • How well do you compromise and try to find time for enjoying quality time together?
  • How productive or destructive are your methods of fighting?
  • Do you kiss and make up without holding grudges?
  • Are you teammates working toward the same goals?
  • Are you both willing to work on your issues together?

DATING AFTER DIVORCE -- TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL ONLINE DATING


1. Guard Your Personal Information – Guarding your personal, sensitive information should be absolutely first and foremost on your agenda when it comes to online dating. Most internet dating sites are filled with "normal" people who are honestly looking for someone else – whether for casual dating or for a serious relationship that leads to marriage. However, there's another set of people you should be concerned with who are in it for all of the wrong reasons and who's intentions are anything but serious.

2. Create a Free Email Address – There are plenty of free email services to choose from so make an email address that's exclusively for use for your adventures in online dating, at least until you've met someone you know you can completely trust. You don't want messages from a jilted "e-date" to be clogging up your work inbox!

3. Choose a Reputable Service – There's certainly no shortage of websites and services devoted to bringing people together romantically, so before you can start looking at other people's profiles, you've got to choose a dating site that meets your needs. When you visit the various dating sites, be sure to thoroughly read their FAQ or Help pages before signing up for anything, and make certain you understand the membership fees, if any, as well as what their refund policies are.

4. Take Your Time – Time is of absolutely no concern in cyberspace. Don't get so excited about meeting a potential profile match that you rush out and put a down payment on a house for the two of you. Take plenty of time to get to know someone before getting serious, or before taking the next steps forward toward a physical relationship.

5. Ask for Photos – Besides the obvious aspect of whether or not you're physically attracted to someone, asking for a few photos also helps to gauge whether or not a person is being honest and seriously looking for a relationship of some sort – or if they're someone merely prowling the internet for reasons that are usually best left unsaid. You'll also want to make sure you're getting pictures that are relatively recent and that you're using recent ones in your own profile as well.

6. Using the Phone – After meeting someone online and chatting for a while, the next step is to exchange telephone numbers and see if the sparks are still flying through the phone's wires. Talking on the telephone is a great way to learn about a person so be sure to make phone "meetings" a part of your online dating agenda before taking the relationship any further.

7. Follow Your Gut Instincts – Most people have an inbred sense of instinct, but whether or not we actually listen to that inner voice and heed its wise warnings is a completely different story. If something just doesn't seem quite right to you, then chances are, it probably isn't. Don't make the mistake of second guessing yourself. Instead, learn to rely upon your natural instincts and listen when they're trying to tell you something.

I HAVE FOUND MY OWN PLACE -- NOW WHAT?


Once you have chosen your apartment and are ready to meet with the leasing representative at the community, the following information will be needed to expedite the approval process:
  • Driver's license for U.S. citizens, passport for non-citizens.
  • Financial information, such as checking and savings account information.
  • Check, money order, or cashier's check for the deposit.
  • Proof of income or ability to pay rent. If you're employed, bring a recent pay stub or tax return. If other financial assistance will be provided, you must show proof of income/ability to pay, such as a pay stub or tax return, and a passport or U.S. Social Security number.
  • If you have a support order often times the landlord will want to see your order to substantiate the monthly support you be receiving.
