Divorce Asset Protection

Divorce asset protection is not one of the first things that comes to mind when your spouse serves you with papers. At that point it's probably too late.

However, if you feel a divorce may be inevitable and you haven't planned well, property division will certainly become a major focus of litigation.

With that being said, one of the best things you can do before papers have been filed is to hire a professional appraiser and let them be the fore front of your divorce asset protection plan.

We say this because asset protection typically involves taking action to protect your financial future and avoid an unfair property division agreement.

A professional can make a big difference because the division of property is determined by establishing the fair market value of any disputed items to in order to make sure one spouse isn't getting more than the other one.

The problem is, if you don't quickly as things start to unravel and let your spouse act first you end up reacting to her, which is not a good place to be in a divorce. Act first so you're ahead of the game, because your spouse will plan her attack on your assets prior to filing.

After this discreet assessment there are steps you can take to keep your affairs private and away from anyone's prying eyes.

Keep in mind that when it comes to assets, knowledge is king. Stop her or her lawyer from acquiring that knowledge and they'll always be running after you for that information.

If you slip up and she or her lawyer get that knowledge of your affairs you'll be racing to catch up with her as she looks to leverage her knowledge of exactly what you own.

As a strategy, privacy is obviously very important to you and should be the foundation of your asset protection.

This is true because today more than ever men need to learn that women, being security focused, take planning very seriously.

Too often men think that getting a good lawyer is all they need to do. You need to be pro-active when it comes to protecting your assets, not putting blind trust in a lawyer that everything will just work out.

So what should you do? Plan, expect, and prepare for the worst. Divorce is more contentious today than ever before and you need to go into this battle with a focus on winning, because nice guys don't finish first.

Divorce asset protection does not just happen, you need to plan it and plan it well.
