Nobody wants to go through a divorce, but roughly 50 percent of married couples do. So how do you plan for your financial future after the breakup?
1. Pull your credit reports
You are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion) once every 12 months. These show all credit accounts that exist in your name alone and jointly with someone else. Your credit score can be damaged if a spouse or ex-spouse fails to pay joint bills.
