Bring clarity to an uncertain time
Before and during the divorce process, we can help you navigate important financial issues such as dividing assets and managing taxes. We can also provide support to your attorney or mediator to facilitate the gathering of important financial information. There are many ways we can help.
Analysis of your comprehensive financial situation and future needs
We’ll do a thorough financial analysis that encompasses assets and debt, tax returns, settlement options, alimony, needs and ability, marital versus non-marital assets, property values, pension values, annuities and life insurance policies.
Preparation of necessary financial documentation and paperwork
We’ll provide a financial affidavit containing all of your financial information, needs analysis, equitable distribution analysis, alimony projections, child support calculations, pension evaluation and division, insurance quotes and a post-divorce financial plan.
Continuing advice for your immediate and long-term financial needs
We understand that you may be managing your financial affairs on your own for the first time. We’ll be with you even after your divorce is finalized to provide financial education and ongoing wealth management; transfer, retitling and distribution of your accounts post-divorce; an income-generation framework; implementation of your financial plan; and other important matters such as college savings plans and Social Security maximization strategies.
