Deciding who gets what in your divorce, a process also known as asset division, is typically one of the most contentious aspects of ending a marriage. Both spouses tend to have their own ideas about what is fair and reasonable, and there is often very little overlap. Whether you find yourself squabbling over a particular asset or trying to minimize how much your spouse takes in the divorce, careful planning ahead of time can do a lot to protect your assets.
As you move closer to the divorce process, it's imperative to better understand your finances and what will change in the weeks and months to come. The more time you put into this up front, the better off you'll be in the future.
