Empower yourself with a financial divorce plan

Few life events create more change and lack of certainty than divorce. Questions about children, housing, social circles and work life can be compounded by emotional distress. One thing that can help clarify your priorities and guide your path during this difficult time is an objective, personalized financial divorce plan.

Suddenly, there are two households and the inevitable duplications of expenses. There are also new expenses, such as legal fees, real estate fees and possible counseling fees. The fact is, most people see a drop in their standard of living through divorce. Women on average experience a 45%–75% reduction. Proper planning can help you avoid any drop in your standard of living, eliminate costly financial mistakes, and find equitable solutions to challenges that arise.

Start your plan as early as possible

The best time to begin is as soon as you feel a divorce is imminent. We work with clients and their attorneys to form a divorce team to support our clients from day one.

Post Divorce Planning

In most cases, there is an inherent conflict of interest for one financial planner working with both divorced clients. One party, especially the dependent spouse, is often left with no one to
guide them in their financial matters during this critical time in their lives.

Immediately upon the termination of the litigation process, we can seamlessly transition you into a comprehensive financial plan and provide management and advisory services to help ensure your long-term financial health and well-being.

Pre & During Divorce Planning

Whether the mood is amicable or adversarial, it’s never too early to craft your own plan. In amicable divorces, we can refer you to highly competent and experienced collaborative attorneys or mediators and provide financial expertise and analysis to find equitable solutions for both sides.

In adversarial divorces, we can begin collecting data before assets "mysteriously" disappear and act as your Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®.
