Dear Alice:

 I’m going away to camp for the whole summer and worked so hard on losing 30 pounds and couldn’t be happier. However, I really don’t want to ruin all the hard work! Help! Any tips that can help me “survive” without getting too off track and at least maintain my loss?

Some of the most complex cases we handle at our firm, Wisselman Harounian & Associates, involve “premeditated divorce planning.” These are cases where one spouse undermines his or her unsuspecting partner by hiding away assets for months and even years before the proceedings start.  Usually, this individual has more control over the income and assets of the family and is the main financial decision maker, whereas, the unsuspecting spouse is “in the dark” about the party’s financial circumstances.
