“Do you have a vision of your life after divorce?
When I ask people who are divorcing what keeps them awake at night, they almost always say, ‘The financial stuff.’ They don’t know if a divorce settlement will be fair and provide for the life they envision and their critical financial needs after they end their marriage.
Whether you are working with a mediator, a collaborative team, or an attorney in a possibly settled or litigated case, preparation and an understanding of your financial needs will help you negotiate with confidence. During negotiations, I will provide you with a detailed financial analysis of any proposed settlement. As discussions continue, my ongoing analysis shows how the changes will affect the life of both spouses, for 10-30 years into the future.
This clear picture allows the divorcing couple and their family to make important, long-term decisions before they sign the agreement. Decisions on spousal maintenance, child support, tax issues, education, the division or sale of property, retirement funding, everyday budgeting and much more.
A fair and equitable financial settlement helps the family move through this difficult time in life and still maintain the important relationships that really matter. Remember, your children are watching.”
