Going through a divorce is not only very stressful, it is a life-changing event. With a population of approximately 20 million residents and with 50% of marriages ending in divorce, there’s no question that divorce is prevalent in New York State.
That is why Suffolk County divorce attorneys such as David P. Badanes Esq. offer sound legal advice on what to do before they file for divorce. In a new article published on his website, Mr. Badanes reveals the top 6 things to do before filing for a divorce in New York.
"There are certain important steps to take that will help you get ahead of the game during the divorce process," says Mr. Badanes, Esq.
Mr. Badanes advises his clients first to get their financial house in order. "The first thing you should do is to open up your own separate bank account," Mr. Badanes advises. "This will prevent your spouse from misusing the money that you have saved in your bank account."
The Suffolk County matrimonial lawyer also suggests making a list of all the credit cards a couple may have under their names.
"If you are the primary cardholder, you may want to prevent your spouse from having further authorized use of your credit cards. You could also freeze or cancel credit cards that are currently not being used.”
Mr. Badanes explains to his clients that taking care of their finances in advance isn't hiding assets or money from their spouse. It simply protects the individual from his/her spouse being able to confiscate any funds they may have together.
