Advocacy for Individuals

    Divorce can be the single biggest financial event in a person’s life. We will be your advocate so that you fully understand your financial position before deciding on a settlement. We want to know what is important to you and what your expectations are for your life after divorce. When considering how to divide the marital assets, it’s critical to know how different settlement options can impact the future. For example, does the tax implications of a settlement impact your current cash-flow needs and does the settlement position you to meet your future financial goals. We work with you so that you fully understand the potential impact of each division option you consider.

  • We'll help you:

    • Navigate each step in the divorce process
    • Select and assist in communicating with your attorney
    • Explore settlement options and requirements for support
    • Explore options to sell or refinance the house
    • Develop a post-divorce budget
    • Envision and plan for a new future
    • Provide mediation or litigation support for the attorney on financial issues
    • Know you have all your financial bases covered
    • Produce powerful exhibits in the form of reports and graphical representations
    • Make sure you understand the short-term and long-term financial impacts of different settlement proposals
    • Manage a Military or Civil Service divorce process

    Divorce Mediation for Couples

    Mediation is a process in which individuals meet with a neutral party in an attempt to resolve disputed issues with the objective of reaching a mutually agreeable, workable solution. In this role we serve as a financial neutral working with both spouses, and we provide an experienced mediator trained in divorce and family mediation. This service is often best for long-term marriages with financial complexity. There are many benefits to mediating your divorce as outlined below, but perhaps the greatest benefit for most people is feeling like your concerns have been heard and that you were able to negotiate the best outcome rather than leave it up to a court to decide.

  • The benefits of Divorce Mediation for Couples are:

      • We serve as a Financial Neutral working with both spouses to achieve a financially fair settlement
      • Mediation includes a prepared Memorandum of Understanding to be taken to a family law attorney for filing
      • Takes less time – a divorce in a court process takes 18-24 months or more – a mediation can be done in a matter of weeks which often saves money too
      • Flat-fee pricing
      • A mediation can be scheduled at your convenience not forced on you based on a court’s schedule
      • It allows the participants to make the decisions instead of leaving it the hands of a third-party

      • It often helps parties maintain a cordial relationship, which is a benefit particularly if they have children together
      • It is completely confidential, so you keep your private life private instead of parading failures, accusations and disappointments through a court hearing
