So where’s your DD? You may feel like you need a designated driver through this course, but this DD I’m referring to is your Direct Deposit?
Do you have any assets that aren’t really shared? While you may not get away with moving the monthly income from your employer, make sure any of your solo assets are being direct deposited to a new account.
A great example is military disability benefits. Jimmy was receiving $200 a month for a partial military disability. In the process of divorce he forgot to redirect the payments. The payments continued to go to his joint bank account even after the divorce was final. Despite contacting Veterans Affairs and an attorney, he was at a loss. His ex pocketed the money and never looked back. I guess she wanted the D.
