Part 6: Managing Memories through Separation or Divorce


In a recent poll, we asked our customers what was the #1 reason for having their photos scanned and digitized. As it turns out, the need to evenly divide memories due to a separation or divorce was the major motivating factor.


For us here at ScanMyPhotos, we often get questions regarding managing memories during a separation or divorce. We do our best to provide professional and helpful customer service for anyone who is going through tough times—and we stick to our policies during the most delicate of situations. However, in order to make the process a much smoother experience for everyone involved, we pulled together the following tips.


Remember that everyone can receive (and replicate) digital copies


It is far easier to split photos down the middle than it is to divide up any other physical assets.

This way, no one has to walk away with only half of the memories—both parties can have digital access to the photos and keep them for years to come.  Continue reading
