Pre-Divorce Planning Overview

When you make the decision that divorce may be the option you have to make, especially when such important and complex issues as child custody, alimony, dissipation of marital assets, business ownership and/or valuation, and or commingling of and protection of nonmarital assets issues are involved.

If you are thinking of filing for divorce, schedule a consultation for pre-divorce planning to help make important decisions and learn. If you are concerned that your spouse may remove funds from accounts, sell a business or property without your knowledge or you want to ensure you know what the laws are regarding your children and co-parenting, a consultation will help you prepare, and know what you need to have, to do, or to refrain from doing prior to filing or being served.

Before going through a divorce, pre-divorce planning is advisable to protect you, your children and the assets and income you've acquired, and prevent you from being taken advantage of. Contact us to schedule a consultation by calling 954- 525-2050.
