The marriage hasn’t been good for awhile. The house is going into foreclosure or a short sale. A new job awaits you in a different state. Is it time to start over?
Revolution makes evolution. Time for a new life. But before you jump into divorce court, it is time to take some steps to plan for your divorce.
Divorce planning can be complex or simple depending upon the extent of assets and debts of the marriage. If there are assets, setting up a trust with your spouse may be just the answer to getting assets out of the marital estate and off to the kids by agreement before the divorce word is ever spoken.
If debts are high, it might be wise to consult a bankruptcy attorney as well as a divorce attorney. It might be best to let that house go into foreclosure. Your course of action depends on the facts specific to your marriage. Divorce planning is just that…thinking before you leap. Know your finances, and know where to get good advice.
