How much is it going to cost? We get asked that question the most!  It is understandable that people are concerned about the cost.  However, keep in mind that the cost is going to vary based on a lot of things (kind of like buying a house or a car).  Considerations:  How long have you [...]

HIDING ASSETS Has your spouse been hiding assets?  If so, what can you do about it?
