Money Issues Drive Divorce : Get It Right!
“Why didn’t I meet you before my divorce!?” is the number one reaction I get when I tell people what I do and how I do it – by a landslide.
According to a a recent study* MONEY ranks as the number on worry during divorce – not children or or other legal issues.
- 63% of those surveyed either do not feel financially secure or do not understand their financial situation well enough to know if they should be worried after divorce.
- 64% said a financial advisor would have been helpful during their divorce (while another 16% didn’t know).

While it is important for the lawyer to focus on the legal aspects of your case, it is critical that you have a divorce financial analyst to educate you about financial matters so you know the money you have and the settlement you need.
The time you spend with your attorney will be more productive and less costly because you will be armed with the financial knowledge you need to move your case forward.
Financial Advice Can Save More Than It Costs
Compensation plans, investments, retirement savings and pension plans are more complex than ever. Engaging an experienced financial advisor may result in greater confidence in negotiations, long term cost savings, and less time and money spent moving accounts or modifying agreements.

And I’ll still be there after the judge enters the final decree to see your plan through and to give you confidence about investing for your future.
