I'm meeting with a divorce lawyer tomorrow. I've put together my balance sheet (debts/assets and current titling) with some general questions and figuring I need to mentally prep myself for a 3 year exit plan if I am to maximize my positioning for separation. I also have the household budget, but haven't printed that off for the meeting.
My prepped questions for the lawyer:
-how to best prepare for divorce?
-feedback on titling of assets.
-how SAHM spouse's lack of income effects situation?
-what happens with debt through a divorce? (and related questions like 'is it better to squirrel away over paying down debt ahead of time?')
-I have a family member who has worked in my company for years. There is a verbal agreement to vest them in the business; how will that effect the situation (will transferring some ownership be seen as an attempt to 'hide' assets?)
-how will current tax rules and non-deduction of alimony effect cash flow?
-should I consult with other good divorce lawyers in the area to narrow her choices of attorneys? (rural America, not many good choices).
-I'm in a cyclical business. The last few years have been solid. If profit (income) goes down significantly post divorce how will that effect me?
What are the obvious and oblique questions I'm missing?
