Planning For Divorce

Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson once said "everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face." Punch in the face, kick in the gut, broadside collision, take your pick. These are all good metaphors for what a divorce can feel like. Even if you see it coming, the reality of the situation can quickly feel overwhelming.

What will happen to my kids? How will I financially support two households? What will happen to my assets? These are difficult questions, but there are solutions.

We Can Help You Plan A Brighter Future

Planning for divorce may seem impossible to do, but an experienced lawyer can. At Huson Law Firm, PLLC, in Maplewood, we have been helping men and women through the divorce process for more than 20 years. You can rely on us for the advice you need during all stages of the divorce process, as well as any post-decree legal matters you encounter.

Watch Your Spending

If your relationship is on the rocks and you think a divorce is possible, now is not the time to spend money on a fancy vacation in an attempt to put your marriage back together. It is the time to make sure your financial affairs are in as good a standing as possible by paying off debts. Remember, it is not just assets that are divided in divorce; debts are also a key factor in property settlements.

Think About The Future You Want For Your Children

Do you want to be there to take your kids to the orthodontist? Do you want to see them on weeknights and attend school activities?

Do it now.

Minnesota family courts prefer to maintain the status quo as much as possible to limit the effect that divorce has on children. If you are not spending time with your children now, it will be difficult to make the case that you should be spending a lot of time with your children post-divorce.

Be Prepared For Anything

In the heat of a divorce, all sorts of troubling things can happen. This includes false allegations of abuse that can have long-term implications if not handled swiftly. As difficult as it may be, do not engage in verbal fights with your spouse. When things are heated, walk away.
