10 Steps to take after separation
You should store your financial and other important documents (such as your marriage certificate, passports, etc.) in a safe place. You may wish to leave them with someone you trust or take them to your workplace. It is not uncommon for important documents to go missing after separation, so you should ensure that you are proactive in protecting these documents. If possible, make copies of your former partner’s documents too. If you have any valuables that carry significant monetary value or sentimental value, you should also consider securing these items in a safe place. Such items may include family heirlooms, jewellery, and memorabilia.
