When planning your divorce, we will also need to know if you have an estate plan including a will, trust, power of attorney or health care directive. Likely, these documents name your spouse as the individual who will make end-of-life medical decisions for you or inherit your estate if you pass away. Our goal is to proactively review and change your estate planning documents to ensure that your wishes regarding your medical treatment and estate are honored.
We are committed to providing services designed to help you plan for a divorce. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to provide them with important information regarding:
- Business interests
- Property ownership
- Finance details and title information
- How to prevent parental relocations
- How to deal with accusations of domestic violence
- Ways to handle drug and alcohol abuse allegations
Our lawyers also help many non-wage earning spouses position themselves financially for a contentious divorce trial.
Protecting Business Assets
We have handled divorce planning for numerous clients with family-owned or closely held businesses. Without proper planning, a divorce dispute can result in frozen business assets. This can have a significant effect a business' ability to function. Our attorneys will work in conjunction with our business law group to limit the impact a divorce has on our clients' businesses. However, we will also fight to protect the rights and business interests of the non-owner spouse.
