...other than finally allowing myself to see STBXWW for who she really is...
was to cancel all credit cards when we officially separated. I immediately pulled up my three credit reports and cancelled all cards with my name on them. (you should do this if you haven't. i found a joint account i had forgotten about, and it was still active!)
I cashed in my (our) money market account and paid over $13,000 in credit card debt.
Even though the credit cards are considered marital debt, and supposed to be divided 50/50, i most likely would have had to take on a majority of it, since my salary is quite a bit higher than hers.
got an 'attaboy' from my attorney, anyway
