Protecting assets in a divorce

Follow Us

Generally speaking, everything you and your spouse purchased during your marriage is considered marital property and part of the marital estate.  Contemplating divorce is difficult.  When you are forced to divide property as part of a divorce, it can be a stressful and emotional experience.

There are ways you can protect the division of marital assets in divorce:

  1. Pre-marital asset protection – Creating a prenuptial agreement.  Courts, for the most part, will accept this type of agreement as long as it is fair and includes all relevant information about assets.
  2. Post-marital asset protection – A contract that is created after the marriage, especially if the couple is experiencing major financial problems.  It includes all marital debts, assets, income and expected monetary gain in the future.
