How Do I Protect Myself Financially in a Divorce?

Divorces are complicated, but having a good idea of the assets you own, as well as maintaining a certain level of financial autonomy, will help. Read on if you want an answer to the question, “How do I protect myself financially in a divorce?”

Ways You Can Protect Yourself Financially in a Divorce

When the nature of your divorce is causing concern for your financial future, it’s probably smart to start devising a financial plan-of-action. Fortunately, depending on the state of your finances, there are a couple of no-nonsense moves you can make to start protecting your post-breakup financial future. 

  • Figure out which assets are yours. Start by identifying any assets you have in your possession. If it’s something you feel is yours, make sure it’s in your name. This goes for savings, home mortgages, auto loans, investments, or others. 
  • Have physical copies of financial records. Divorces can turn acrimonious, fast. The last thing you want is to be shut out of any shared bank accounts. If possible, move some assets into a sole account. 
  • Assemble a team you can trust. Divorces are fraught with emotion. Consulting an experienced divorce attorney can help you ensure you’re being properly protected.
