When a couple divorces, you can do the Life Event “Perform Divorce.” This event is available for two people who are married when one is marked as “head of household” and the other is marked as “spouse.”
Begin on the member screen of one of the individuals and select the “Perform Divorce” Life Event
Determine if you also “Perform Annulment” at this time, marking the Marriage Sacrament Card on each member as invalid. If you are not sure of the status of the annulment, you can perform this task later with information in this article.
Below the two new families will appear. Determine the new address for each and envelope number. The envelope number can be left blank as well, however, a family without an envelope number cannot be added to a mailing list. Here you can update the family name as well for each individual.
Select which new family the other members should be moved to.
The two new families have now been created. If you want to assign the family that has a new envelope number to any mailing lists, you will have to do so manually. See this article for more information.
