Asset Protection

As you pursue divorce or are served with divorce papers, asset protection should be at the forefront of your mind. During a family law dispute, you want to ensure that your property is safeguarded from the other party. Small business owners and those with sizeable assets must take extra precaution to protect their interests if a termination of divorce takes place.

Even if when divorce is not expected, protecting what belongs to you is important. At Hendrickson Cooper Hughes, our Huntington Beach divorce attorneys can help you protect your assets in the event of divorce.

Establishing A Trust

When property division occurs in a California divorce case, property owned by one individual prior to the marriage is considered separate property. Trusts will also be placed in the "separate property" category if established prior to the marriage. Assets can be managed and interests can be protected through the establishment of a trust. Business owners who seek to protect their holdings should schedule a free consultation with our firm to assess what actions should be taken toward asset protection.

As you prepare to become united to another individual in marriage or a registered domestic partnership, we encourage you to protect your assets to avoid unnecessary complication in the case of divorce.
