Make sure you know these signs that a spouse may be planning a divorce. And contact our Scottsdale divorce attorney when you need the best Arizona divorce representation.

Has your partner recently transferred some major assets – like real estate, vehicles, etc. – out of his or her name and into someone else’s name? Or has your spouse recently been making some substantial loans or gifts to friends and/or relatives?

If so – and if you are getting unreasonable or fishy answers about why this has happened, this could be another sign that your partner is planning a divorce. Just like reductions in income, transferring or gifting assets to others can be a sneaky way to try to:

  • Prevent these assets from being included in the marital estate
  • Not have these assets be split up in the divorce.
6 – Is Running up/Maxing out Joint Lines of Credit

Have the charges on your joint credit cards suddenly skyrocketed? Or are your joint lines of credit all maxed out?

If so – and if this seems to have happened overnight without your doing, you may be facing another big red flag that your spouse is planning a divorce. By running up charges on joint credit lines, people who are getting ready to file for divorce can:

  • Stockpile funds to retain a divorce attorney
  • Try to prevent you from having the financial support you may need to retain a lawyer and/or support yourself during divorce later.
7 – Has Stopped Informing you of his or her Financial Situation

Are you suddenly on the outside of your marital financial situation? Has your partner stopped informing you about the finances or intentionally misled you about them?

Such tactics often come into play when people are preparing for divorce, as these people may be trying to:

  • Start financially separating from you
  • Obscure your understanding of your marital property and/or their “separate” property
  • Hide assets in divorce
  • Position themselves to get the better resolution in their upcoming divorce cases.

Client Reviews
Karen is highly respected in the legal community. She is effective and thorough. Karen just keeps going regardless of the odds.
Karen was extremely helpful setting up my petition for conciliation. She is by far the most knowledgeable attorney regarding the necessary paperwork, how to file the petition and where it has to be submitted. She listened intently when I was describing my situation and intentions. She was very responsive to my questions and request. She is trustworthy and diligent . I would recommend her to anyone having marital issues. Mark
Very high customer/client considerate. We found Karen when we were forced to leave another Phoenix lawyer due to his bad advice and lack of interest to help us. We were in Phoenix for six days from Michigan with nothing happening but a high wasted expense. Karen and her firm took us in and solved our issue with the courts etc. in two and a half days. Karen’s professionalism with us was very cost effective/productive. If we would have found her first, we would have saved thousands of dollars. Her interest for us was very high. She returned every call. She knew every answer to our questions. She did this for us with a death in her family. She left for a funeral and made sure we were treated with the same professionalism from her firm to finish up. I recommend Karen and her firm with very high satisfaction. Our case is custody with one parent in prison. We will return to Phoenix someday with interests for the child and his parent, if needed. Karen will be our top choice. Nolan
Karen and Bonita are wonderful!! I know that the word "wonderful" is used a lot, but the team they make and the work they did for me can only be described as WONDERFUL!! Yes there where ups and downs in my case, but that is the system and Karen along with Bonita guided and taught me as "WE" went through it together. Karen’s easy going manner and her knowledge really helped me with the emotional part of my divorce. I used the team of Karen and Bonita both times I needed to go to court with my ex and had results that were best for my little girl. Some times I did not get what I wanted, but it was what my daughter needed. Looking back at my case, I made the right choice and would do it again in a heart beat!! Jim
Karen was extremely supportive during a very trying time in our lives. She helped me to put things in perspective and think positive when I was overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to grandparents rights and the rights of the parents and knew how to provide the appropriate laws pertaining to the situation we were in. I am so grateful for her expertise and guidance. She proved to be very aggressive when she needed to be but was also supportive to my and my children. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation. Deanna
