Pushing the Reset Button
Why do we focus and specialize in divorce?
About 40-50% of US families divorce.
A life you hoped was forever falls apart, and sometimes not because you chose to divorce. The worries our clients have are about their kids, families, cash flow, what people with think of them, and how do they tell everyone? Most are spending more money than they thought and are concerned about the bleeding cash flow effecting their savings.
Because it is such a complicated matter , having the right professionals on your side is crucial. Most often, the relationship you have with professionals is managed by one spouse. The person that needs our help isn't that person. The person that needs our guidance is the one who is looking for a fresh start.
The pre-divorce settlement planning is crucial. Your new lifestyle will come with a different income and different spending plan. Knowing what it is that you will need to sustain that lifestyle makes a difference in how you approach your divorce.
The post-divorce planning is putting the wheels in motion. The original plan that was decided upon needs not to be reworked with a fresh new framework. These "resetting" clients often want a new advisor because they are often concerned about loyalty, privacy, and the advice they will be given apart from their former spouse. We work in a fiduciary capacity to help you identify all you need in order to keep the comforts you are accustom to. Let us help you define your new family goals and help to build a professional team around you that is looking out for your best interests.
Divorce is hard, and sometimes brutal. Complexities are both emotional and financial. Trying to figure it all out seems impossible. We try to relieve the financial burden for the "Resetting" spouse that needs new professionals for the right advice.
Equitable Distribution Analysis
"When this is all done, what am I going to have to sustain my lifestyle? And....Where is all of the money and how do I find it?"
Sometimes fair and even are two different things. The proper financial analysis can help advise you the best division of assets and the income you need for your successful Fresh Start. Tax ramifications can be overlooked when assets are being settled. We will work with you and your CPA to determine the best course of action. We also have a CPA on staff to help if you do not have one.

Preparing for a new life can be frightening. We help to relieve that stress by walking you through your new spending plan, your new income, having all of the technicalities set up, and a plan to define this in the most simplest way. We are here to hold your hand and empower you to take your new Fresh Start.
"Am I going to have enough and how and where should I be investing?"
