The time before you file is crucial. There are many documents that you will need throughout the divorce process, and the include things like: paystubs, copies of title documents, loan documents, credit card statements, insurance information, and a listing of household items. If you are not going to be in the marital residence after you file, use this opportunity to collect as much of this documentation, and inventory that you can. You should also take this time to change any e-mail, voicemail, and online password information you have. Your privacy is of crucial importance and you should take steps to protect it during your divorce. Do not assume that your spouse does not have access to your passwords, especially if you have shared a computer during the marriage.
