How to Protect Yourself in Case of a Divorce
I am often contacted by potential clients who unexpectedly find themselves in a situation where they either need to file for divorce or their spouse has filed for divorce, but do not have any access to finances. To prevent this situation, it is important to try and always have access to financial assets. Everyone should try and have at least one bank account in his or her individual name only with funds to support yourself for a least one month and preferably for 6 months.
Also, everyone should try and have at least one credit card in his or her individual name which has room to be able to charge for such things as necessities and attorney’s fees. While a Court may award support, including attorney’s fees, depending on the court, it may take several months to get before a Judge for a hearing and to request an award for support.
