Budgeting Tips

If you are separating or divorcing, understanding your financial picture can be a challenge, especially if you were not necessarily part of the financial decisions when you were part of a couple. Setting up a budget assists you in understanding your needs and helps you make decisions with regard to employment, dividing assets and negotiating support numbers. Speaking with a financial planner or accountant can help you get on the right track. For some self-help from the web, try these websites:

Mint is a highly recommended website, but the beta is not without its kinks at the moment. I recently went into a panic because a whole series of charges appeared for one NYC vendor that were not mine.

When I went to the credit card source website, I could see that the charges were, in fact, mine and were for a bunch of different local vendors.

So, check out mint, but use it wisely and check it.
