Divorce Financial Planning - What to Expect
Most people who are going through a divorce have never done it before. Alternatively, their situation has substantially changed since the last time they were divorced. You will quickly learn that divorce can be a crash course in everything from family law to financial planning to unexpected health issues. The divorce planning service is a guide to help you get through the divorce process as easily as possible. Throughout the process, I partner with you to learn about the your vision for your post-divorce life and serve as a guide to get you there. I, personally, assist with all of the financial aspects and will refer to others for assistance needed outside of my area of specialty. I have that clients who go through this process with me are able to face their divorce with greater confidence while also saving themselves quite a bit of money.
Divorce Financial Planning Steps:
Creating a vision for your post-divorce life.
How can we create a plan if we don't know where we're going? This is often the most emotionally challenging task. A lot will be changing in your life but rather than having the divorce process determine those changes, I want to help you control how your life will be following your divorce.
Organizing and preparing financial documents.
I work with you to gather all of the financial information you will need to proceed with your divorce, including creating a budget and preparing a financial affidavit.
I will help you create SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound). These goals might need to be modified throughout the process but it's an important exercise to prepare you for negotiating your divorce settlement.
Finalizing Your Divorce Plan
I work with you to select an attorney or mediator, depending on how you want to proceed. I assist you in making the most of your time with that professional in order to reduce your overall cost of divorce. I continue to provide support regarding all of the financial aspects of your divorce and will continue to work with you following your divorce, if needed.
