It is important to make sure you will have sufficient funds available to pay your bills, care for your children and hire a lawyer, at least during the first phase of a divorce. It is a good idea to have a separate bank account that your spouse does not have access to with these funds in it. Remember that all the property you and your spouse have is presumed to be community property, so, depending on circumstances, as the case progresses you may ask the court to order your spouse to provide you additional funds for living expenses and attorney fees.
