Protecting Your Assets In Your Charleston Divorce

child support money

You have worked hard, sacrificed, and made wise financial decisions to get where you are in life.

Now, you’re facing the risk of losing substantially all of it.

The good news is that you can still avoid financial disaster in your Charleston divorce. Instead of kicking yourself for letting things get this far without making a divorce contingency plan, you should act now to protect your financial future.

The choice is yours.


Your financial future will hinge largely on how well you do three things during your Charleston divorce.

  1. Always think financially. You cannot afford to make decisions emotionally. The decisions you make during your Charleston divorce will directly affect the remainder of your life. While you may have many reasons to be upset and even angry, you must take a step back and make your decisions with your head and not your heart. Impulsive emotion-laden decisions during your divorce will almost certainly cost you money – sometimes lots of money for many years into the future.
  1. Plan for your financial needs before, during, and after your divorce. Develop and implement a strategic plan for where you want to be after your divorce. While a wedding may be all about celebrating the love of two people, a divorce is largely about who gets the money after the divorce. You need a plan to save your assets in your Charleston divorce.
  1. Become informed. As I outline in the articles on this website, getting divorced is easy. Getting divorced and protecting your assets is difficult. Protecting your assets requires two things: (a) you must become well informed regarding the Charleston divorce process; and (b) you must obtain expert advice from an experienced Charleston, SC divorce lawyer, financial advisor, and other divorce professionals.
