Asset Protection Attorneys in Harrisburg

Take Immediate Legal Action to Protect Your Property

If you are worried about losing specific property in the event of a divorce or during the course of your marriage, Shaffer & Engle can help. Property is most effectively protected before marriage. However, we can take action to protect your assets both before marriage and after your marriage has already taken place through several legal options. Our Dauphin County asset protection attorneys can work with you to find the legal solution that works best for you and your spouse.

A few of these legal solutions include:

  • Revocable trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Postnuptial agreements

To inquire about asset protection, give us a call at (717) 268-4287 to schedule a free consultation with our legal team.

Establishing a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are regarded by the court as a contract. They are used to list any wishes that one or both parties has in regard to a possible separation or divorce in the future. Although every couple hopes and intends for their marriage to last, drafting a legal agreement can help to give you peace of mind in the event that the marriage ends. Both parties will need to accurately list their assets going into the marriage, such as investment portfolios, bank accounts, and other pieces of property.

Equitable Distribution & Business Assets

Our firm has significant experience in dealing with equitable distribution, which is the manner that assets and debts are divided during separation or divorce. If you are facing a legal separation or divorce, having strong representation is essential to ensure that you are not taken advantage of. Our goal is to advocate for you by using our in-depth knowledge of family law and bringing in business and financial experts when needed. You can also rely on us to help you protect your stake in your business.

    Janay

  • Mr. Engle took my matter as if it were his own and followed through to the end.

    “I contacted Mr. Engle back in August. My custody case had originated in Delaware in 2013 and was the final hearing was held in May of 2015. After the other party objected DE having jurisdiction, he took matters into his own hands and got PA involved - where he lives. In a panic I called Mr. Engle after being referred to him by my DE attorney. Even though I wasn't a client and I did not have an appointment scheduled, Mr Engle took the time out to hear the background information, calm me down and come to, what I thought, was a good conclusion. Fast forward 4 months later and every email, phone call and frantic visit to his office was greeted with kindness and patience...and if he was unavailable, his staff showed the same warm professionalism. I could be sure that I would hear back from him within the same business day - sometimes even on his downtime after hours - or first thing in the morning. Mr. Engle took my matter as if it were his own and followed through to the end. I would not hesitate to call on Mr. Engle again if the occasion ever arose.”
