This is the third part of my series – When Should I Hire a Divorce Attorney. This post is about problems with money. Money problems arise in many marriages and that alone is not a reason to get a divorce. However, if the issues with money persist and lead to a breakdown of the marriage such that you have considered filing for a divorce, then it is a really good idea to hire a divorce attorney to help you.
First, money problems can come in many forms. It may be that your spouse is spending too much money. It could be that your spouse is not sharing money with you. It might be that your spouse is preventing you from access to money. It could also be that your spouse is wasting money on frivolous ventures or risky investments. Your spouse might be hiding money from you. Your spouse could have opened accounts that you are not aware exist. Perhaps your spouse is not using money for marital debt without telling you.
