What are some of the steps to take in planning for divorce in Rhode Island?
When planning for divorce in Rhode Island, especially one where there is a huge financial stake for one or both parties, we recommend the following course of action.
Assess your credit
One of the first things you need to do when planning for divorce in Rhode Island is to assess your credit. The sooner you can assess what sort of damage your credit can (or will) suffer, the better you will be able to defend yourself against the inevitable onslaught that will come in the process.
Transfer as many assets as you can into your own name
Communal property, of course, cannot and should not get divided – or put into your own name – without coming to a legally binding resolution with your soon-to-be spouse. However, when planning for divorce in Rhode Island, it is absolutely essential to get your own bank accounts and credit cards. This will help you establish financial independence outside of your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
