There are 100 ways to get revenge against a cheating spouse. Let’s talk about what you can do once you know your spouse is cheating, and when you want out of the relationship. This is mainly for women, but many ideas can be applied for men, too.
We’re going to discuss how to get financial revenge against your cheating spouse.
The second you start thinking about a divorce, you need to start planning. Many women wait until the last second to get a lawyer. Now is the time to prepare, you need to start planning your escape and financial smack down far in advance.
Silence is Golden
The biggest mistake that people make against their cheating spouses is that they find out enough information about the affair, and then they confront their spouse. If you’re playing poker and have a great hand, you’re not going to show your cards to your opponent, the same goes when you know your partner is having an affair.
Once you know your spouse is cheating, pretend nothing has happened, grin and bear it, and start planning and plotting against your spouse.
Do not tell anyone, not even your best friends. Why?
First, they might think they are doing you a favor by contacting your spouse, because they want you to stay together.
Second, because they might get pissed off at you one day, forget that they’re your “best friend” and tell your spouse out of spite.
Third, they may get a subpoena to testify. You never know what people are going to do once they’re under oath.
7 Quick Ways to Get Your House in Order
1. Set up a Post Office Box
You will want to set up a P.O. Box to receive any mails that you don’t want your spouse to know about. Letters from your lawyer and letters from your new personal banking and finances should go here. However, keep some correspondences going to your regular home address, because you don’t want to raise any suspicion.
2. Close Joint Accounts
You need to remove your name from joint accounts. If your spouse decides to later take all of the money out of the account, or open up lines of credit (which you could be responsible for later), it will be very hard to deal with it later.
It’s best to take out at least half of what is in the account, and deposit it in a new personal account that you should open.
3. Set up Your Own Personal Banking Account
Set up a new banking account, one that your spouse knows nothing about. Even if you already have a personal account, move most of that money into a new account.
4. Establish Your Own Credit
If you haven’t done so, establish your own credit, get a credit card and keep it active. Charge a few things and pay them off on time. Remember, it’s possible for your spouse to cancel any joint credit cards and accounts that you have so be pro-active and prepared.
5. Make a Complete Inventory
Every tangible thing that you have accumulated during your marriage can get split up in court. So, you need to make a record of everything. It’s best to take photos of expensive items in case your spouse tries to hide, or sell them when your marriage starts to fall apart. Keep track of the date when the photos were taken.
6. Revise Your Will
If your spouse is listed in your will, you will want to change that.
7. Start Preparing for Your New Life
If you have been a stay at home mom, or dad, you might not be ready for the new financial strain that this will put on you. You might be taking the kids with you, too. This is another added burden, and requires more money.
Before you put yourself or your spouse out in the street, be prepared to move into your new lifestyle. If you don’t have a job, or ready profession, now is the time to start training for it. If you are qualified to work, but don’t have a job, now is the time to start looking for work. Don’t wait until the last minute.
After you have done the above, it’s time to contact a lawyer, and find out what other papers you need to get your hands on, and what your course of action should be.
Getting financial revenge against your spouse is always a viable option. Hey, you put your heart and soul into your relationship, you suffered, so why shouldn’t your soon to be ex suffer, too?
