“ I just want what’s fair …I just want what I’m entitled to.”
If it was just that easy, divorce lawyers & courts wouldn’t be busy.
My approach for divorcing women is from the perspective “ what do I need to be OK?”
I believe that most divorcing women do want to arrive at a settlement that works for both partners. What’s missing in most divorces processes is financial expertise.
How do you know if you need financial advice in your divorce?
If any one of the situations listed below is your case, you have good reason to get some expert financial advice
- You don’t understand your situation
- You have a good income and a busy schedule, so you would be better off if someone else did the paperwork
- You want to be sure you’re doing the right thing and have the confidence of knowing it’s being done right
- The division of marital assets and debts is unequal
- Home or real estate is being kept to sell later
- Major asset is being divided or sold
- One or both spouses are self-employed owners
With expert financial advice early in the divorce process, women can increase their chances for arriving at a settlement that works.
