ONDA partners Jeff Anderson and Keith Nelson are among the attorneys quoted in an article appearing on Yahoo! Finance. The article discusses the financial toll divorce often takes on a couple and the steps they can take to avoid it.
Jeff speaks to the importance of document-gathering before a divorce starts to ensure that property that can be divided between spouses is divided between spouses. “Too many times the necessary documents seem to disappear after a divorce starts,” he says. “So to the highest degree possible, gather those documents before you start the divorce.”
In a similar thread, Keith speaks to the sometimes complex nature of dividing assets between spouses. “A bank account with cash in it is pretty easy to value – look at the balance,” he says. “But a retirement account, a house, or securities can have more complex issues.”
