Obtaining financial independence during a divorce through the Coronavirus Pandemic

Whether you decided you need a separation or divorce from your partner, or you believe you may be the victim of a financially abusive relationship, finding your independence and financial foothold are critical steps to gaining freedom and independence.

Abusive relationships, particularly financially abusive relationships are often difficult to recognize, tend to worsen the longer the relationship is maintained, and can quickly spiral out of control the moment one partner seeks separation from the other.

Victims of abuse often report feeling dependent, trapped, and fearful of their abusers. In the form of financial abuse, victims often have very little control over the household finances or find themselves scrutinized for every decision they make.

It is for these reasons that many victims of financial abuse often fear or avoid seeking a divorce from their spouse. Especially in cases involving children or other dependents, it may seem impossible to navigate the complex issues of separation from a controlling spouse.

But this could not be further from the truth. An experienced Family Law Attorney will possess the expertise to enable you to understand your choices and navigate the best possible outcome in order to secure your financial independence. As explained by Anastasiia Staples from “Legal issues often complicate matters…gaining custody of children are often legal battles [and] in such cases, having legal support can be crucial to a positive outcome.”

If you are ready to take the first step in obtaining your financial independence through divorce or separation, contact the Law Offices of Lisa A. Ruggieri to schedule a personal one on one consultation with Attorney Lisa Ruggieri.

She Was Aggressive And Never Backed Down

I found Lisa through reviews and was not disappointed. Lisa and her staff were great! They were very supportive and explained everything. She was aggressive and never backed down, even when I wanted to settle. She always looked out for my best interest, even when I didn’t want to. I can’t recall a single debate she lost during the entire case. If I were ever in a similar situation again (which will not be anytime in the foreseeable future!), I would call Lisa.
