Back At It
While updating and preparing information (yet again) regarding my legal situation, I’m finding I have to force myself to sit at the computer this time around. I am that sick of it.
But I keep on going. I won’t stop.
However, it occurred to me that I might have been inclined to give up or give in long ago if I didn’t have a clue as to what I as doing, what I was entitled to.
There are probably many women (and men) who’d be unable to cope with or understand the financial and legal ramifications of the dismantling of a marriage – in part because they had no idea as to the state of their financial affairs while married.
Lawyers can only work with the information they’re given. If you don’t have it to give? Advantage – opposing team.
Ladies and Gentlemen: May your marriages last until death do you part but (god forbid) on the off chance they might not, familiarize yourselves with and become knowledgeable as to your financial situation now.
“What’s mine is yours” is not good enough. That sentiment changes. You need to know what the “mine” consists of in order to hold on to “yours.”
Okay, okay, long enough break from the legal mumbo jumbo – back to it.
