In a divorce case, it is extremely important to be able to distinguish between credit card charges you and your spouse made during the marriage and credit card charges you or your spouse made after the start of divorce proceedings.
A common mistake that one or both parties make is to continue to use marital credit cards after the start of the divorce. This makes it very difficult for either party to prove whether he or she paid marital credit card charges or post-marital credit card charges.
To avoid this problem, you should stop using any marital credit cards once there is a divorce action pending. Open your own credit card account so that you can separate your post-divorce finances from your spouse’s finances.
