How can I stay organized during my divorce?

Getting divorced can be an incredibly stressful and document heavy process. It is already a very emotional process and a huge change in your life and it can only be made worse if you do not stay organized throughout the process. There are plenty of deadlines and documents that you need to be aware of when you are going through a divorce. It is so essential that you take the time to organize yourself in order to make a difficult process a little bit easier.

Keep a calendar

When you file for divorce, you should make sure you have a calendar where you can keep all of the important dates available. You will have to meet deadlines and you will have plenty of appointments with your accountant and attorney, and a few court dates or mediation sessions. It is important that you make sure you keep track of when all of the important dates are. You may want to write all of these dates down on a physical calendar or planner or you may want to keep them all logged in an electronic calendar that can alert you before the event.


You will have to sift through a lot of paperwork, financial statements, and other documents. If you lose a piece of paper, it may be one that can be irreplaceable. Make sure you keep all of your paperwork in a binder or a filing cabinet so nothing goes missing when you need it most.
