Asset Protection — Before Marriage and During Divorce
100 Years of Combined Family Law Legal Experience in Pennsylvania
When planning for the protection of your assets, there are two times you can work to effectively protect your interests — before your marriage and after you have become married. At the Law Offices of Peter J. Russo, P.C., we can help you at both points:
- Before you marry, informative legal counsel can help you to protect your property through prenuptial agreements and other methods.
- After you marry, post-nuptial agreements can effectively address property protection before challenges arise. We can also provide aggressive negotiation, collaborative law and litigation legal services in the event of a pending divorce.
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts, including pensions, IRAs and 401(k) accounts
- Houses and vacation homes
- Tool chest, guns, gifts from parents, pets and any other property of value to you
Through premarital asset-protection planning, we can advise you on how to avoid the equitable distribution of certain property by keeping it in your sole possession through separate accounts and strategic investing. And if you face divorce, we can investigate your financial history and aggressively and knowledgeably argue why your property should be considered yours and yours alone.
