In this increasingly complex world, a financial professional makes sense to assist in the divorce process. Whether you choose a negotiated settlement through collaboration or mediation, or the traditional divorce model, we can help. We offer a complimentary initial 20-minute consultation to help you understand the divorce process, financial disclosure requirements, and options available.
Financial Divorce Specialists do not provide legal advice, therefore all clients are encouraged to seek independent legal advice.
Meetings focus on:
- Helping you prioritize financial interests and establish goals
- Assisting with data collection
- Preparation of draft financial statements
- Budgeting and cash flow analysis
- Helping to improve your financial knowledge
- Review of retirement plans, pensions, investments, insurance and debt
- Net Family Property statements
- Preparing projections of settlement proposals, presenting alternative options, and reviewing implications of each
As part of the collaborative team, a financial professional acts as a neutral party, assisting both spouses, along with the Legal and family professionals.
Adding a financial professional makes sense when:
- You are feeling overwhelmed with addressing your finances
- You would like to get your financial documents in order prior to initiating the legal process

- One spouse is more financially savvy
