Augusta Divorce Asset Protection Lawyer

Evans Pre-Divorce Asset Planning Attorney

For many people who are going through or contemplating a divorce, anxiety about finances and assets can be significant. Some people are concerned that their spouse or former spouse will "take them to the cleaners" in a divorce settlement, get an unfair amount of alimony or child support, or take property or money that does not rightfully belong to them. This is where the assistance of a skilled attorney is important.

At Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, we are knowledgeable when it comes to protecting assets during the marriage dissolution process. As Georgia divorce lawyers with extensive experience in property division, we can help you address your important concerns about your assets, both before and during divorce proceedings.

Secure Your Assets Legally With the Help of an Attorney

In most divorce situations, some assets clearly seem to belong to both parties (such as a house), some may obviously belong to one spouse (such as a family heirloom inherited before the marriage), and others may be disputed. In helping you protect assets that may be subject to argument, we can assist you in the following ways:

  • By assessing your property in pre-divorce asset planning
  • By making sure a spouse can't, for example, empty your joint bank account in the short term
  • By preventing assets that are yours alone from being disposed of
  • Through hidden asset discovery that ensures that all marital assets are known
  • By making sure that important assets like retirement accounts are dealt with equitably
