As a part of your team of advisors (attorney, family counselor, etc.), our job is to help you identify your goals, develop a fair division of your assets and any debts, and explain the assumptions that lead to that fair division of your finances.
We want to lower your stress about your children and your lifestyle. As experienced certified financial planner practitioners, we help people work through life events and life crises -- starting their career and starting their retirement, setting up their first independent housing and moving to assisted living, managing change in their career and change in their retirement, getting married and getting a divorce.
Applying those experiences as certified divorce financial advisors, we help our clients anticipate changes that will take place and those that might take place. We help our clients prevent as well as prepare.
With money issues consistently ranked as a key element in divorce, we encourage people to communicate about their financial situation and move toward a common family financial plan before the issues become overwhelming. Most couples do not start out with the same financial goals and expectations. Most couples need to talk about their finances to have a common plan.
