Customer Question
I am currently single and...
I am currently single and I have a property that I bought solely and substantial savings. I am planing to get married and would like to protect my assets and savings to just myself in the event of my marriage not working out - how can I make sure in the event of a divorce I have my hard earned assets and savings to just myself ? Is there a way ? Thanks
