Comparing Death and Divorce -Financially Speaking.

| Jun 13, 2011 | Uncategorized

Anyone who is contemplating a Massachusetts divorce should begin by educating themselves about the nature and extent of assets and debts of the parties. Many spouses are indeed in the dark when it comes to their family’s finances, often having deferred to one spouse to handle the “checkbook” over the years. The time to educate oneself should not be in the midst of a divorce case. Think of it as a business transaction and try to remove emotions from the mix. Take some time to prepare yourself by examining asset and account values, tax returns, paystubs and mortgage statements. Most family law lawyers will expect some details of the family’s financial estate at the first meeting.
