Certified Divorce Financial Planning

You agree that the best thing is to end your marriage and move on. You’re reasonable and can sit at a table together and discuss the situation. You want to avoid a costly court battle. Perhaps you really don’t even need a mediator. However, despite the fact that you are amicable, you have been married a long time and just don’t know where to start. You and your partner need financial guidance during your divorce in order to separate the finances fairly.

You might have investments, retirement accounts, pensions, businesses, expenses, rental properties, etc. How in the world do you structure a property settlement that is fair and won’t get you into tax trouble?

You have come to the right place.

Divorce mediation Assistance

Mediators often struggle with properly educating a couple on the financial complexities of their settlements.

Here are a few things we’ve heard from the mediators we’ve worked with about financial concerns that pop up during divorce mediation services with clients:

“My clients want to stay in the house but can’t qualify to refinance. What can we do?” WE CAN OFFER OPTIONS!

“The clients gave me a pension statement, but is that what it’s really worth?”

“The couple knows there will be spousal maintenance but they’re struggling with how much for how long.”

“They own a business and need options for how to handle it.”

Don’t risk your career advising on financial issues that are not your specialty. Let us take the risk by partnering with you.
