Protecting and preserving your assets is easily one of the most important components of any divorce. You've spent your life acquiring assets, and an unexpected divorce can destroy a lifetime of hard work. Properly preserving and protecting your assets requires action before and after a divorce is filed.
At the Law Offices of David E Oles, LLC, our divorce lawyer can help you navigate through the difficulties of protecting what is most valuable to you during this difficult time. At our firm, we take a proactive approach to help you reach the best possible solution.
How Do I Preserve My Assets?
Oftentimes a written agreement is a good choice to set out the parties’ expectations in the event the marriage ends. Written agreements may override underlying law, and provide you with a measure of control over what happens with assets instead of merely leaving it up to the judge. Agreements can be constructed both prior to the marriage (prenuptial), and after the marriage (postnuptial). We can help you draft an agreement that fits the needs of your situation.
A proper asset preservation strategy can include many steps, including:
- Pre-divorce action: Taking action before a divorce is filed requires you to choose the best place and manner to hold and title your assets. Carelessly or unknowingly mixing your assets in the wrong account can easily dismantle claims to separate property, which can cost you thousands and thousands of dollars.
- Post-divorce action: You should thoughtfully consider the usage of your debts and other resources, as opposed to simply depleting your assets. Setting up the right accounts at the right time is crucial in avoiding exposing unintentional losses.
