  • How To Protect Yourself Financially If You Are Considering Divorce Or Separation

    Lorne MacLean of the MacLean Family Law Group whose website is at www.bcfamilylaw.ca enjoys providing the public with free legal information and lauds Judge Brownstone and producer Nancy Kinney for their important work in democratizing the law and bringing important information to people who are facing the stormy seas of marriage breakdown with their outstanding legal reality show FAMILY MATTERS TV. MacLean is in high demand as a speaker and author of numerous articles on family and divorce law. Here is MacLean's very popular article on protecting yourself before and during a divorce or marriage breakdown. If you have questions he can be reached at lorne@bcfamilylaw.ca .

    If you are considering or are at the start of a marriage breakdown or separation you need to take immediate steps to protect yourself and the first thing you should do is contact a good family attorney and spend 30 minutes or more with them getting a summary of your basic rights and obligations.
