There are some things we go through in life that are just not particularly enjoyable, no matter what we do to make them better. Root canals, surgery, and divorce are just some examples. Going through a divorce, even an amicable one, is disruptive to one’s life and can also take a severe financial toll on the individuals involved. Finances are diligently assessed in order to divide assets equitably, or in the case of community property states like Nevada, equally. We all work hard to get ourselves financially better off, and during a divorce, it can seem as though one spouse is benefitting from his or her spouse’s efforts. There are some actions parties can take to protect their finances during a divorce.
