One of the first questions clients ask when they see a professional about going through a divorce is “How much is this going to cost me?” The answer of course is, “It depends.”
It depends on a lot of things. I would ask, “Are you talking about the emotional cost of divorce or the financial cost of divorce?”
Have you chosen the method you are using to get divorced: doing it yourself, mediation, collaborative divorce or the traditional litigative model?
Hiding assets during a divorce is sneaky, unethical and illegal –but it happens much more frequently than most people think.
Couples today have complex financial portfolios. Your list might include things like your marital residence, rental and/or vacation properties, bank and brokerage accounts, retirement and pension plans, stock options, restricted stock, deferred compensation, life insurance with cash value, perhaps a business or professional practice . . . and potentially much more.
