If you are a working dad and facing a divorce, here is what you need to know to protect your rights.
- Keep working. If you quit your job, the court will not reduce your child support obligation. Furthermore, you will need the income.
- Open a new bank account. You will need access to your own funds. Although you will most likely need to keep paying the monthly expenses, you are permitted to open up your own new bank account.
- Reduce your expenses. Where possible, reduce your expenses and save what you can. You may soon be facing child support and maintenance payments that will strain your budget.
- During the divorce process — don’t move out of the house.
- Once the divorce is over, if you must relocate from the marital home, then you should find a place to live as close as possible to where your children will be living.
- Stay involved with your children.
- Make the most of your time with your children. This does not mean that you have to be a “Disneyland Dad”. Find activities that you both you and your children enjoy.
- Make a budget.
