Tampa: Divorce Now With Assets Low

Joseph Cordell, Principal Partner of Cordell & Cordell spoke with the Tampa Tribune about the strategic benefits of divorcing during a recession.

Cordell, whose firm represents men in divorce litigation, is asking men who may be considering a divorce to examine the value of their assets in relation to the health of the economy.

“It’s not a controversial point to make that if a guy’s going to be in front of a judge, it’s going to be advantageous if it’s when his assets are at an ebb, rather than a peak,” Cordell said. “If a guy is relatively impoverished, that’s going to give him an advantage in his arguing that his wife should take on more of the debt.”
