Divorce often brings significant changes to a family's financial landscape. A financial planner can help develop a post-divorce budget, create financial goals, provide investment advice, and ensure you're on a secure path for the future.
Property division can be one of the most complicated aspects of divorce. Engaging a realtor who is experienced in divorce scenarios can help ensure that property sales or acquisitions are made efficiently, equitably, and with minimal stress.
A divorce might require you to refinance a mortgage or purchase a new home. Mortgage lenders can guide you through this process, helping you understand your options and secure the best possible terms.
For couples who own businesses, your divorce may involve the division of those assets. Business advisors can provide valuation, assess tax implications, and guide you through the process of separating business assets equitably.
Divorce requires a review of your estate plan. Estate planning attorneys can ensure that wills, trusts, beneficiaries, and power of attorney designations align with your wishes and proper implementation post-divorce.
Alcohol Monitoring Services
In cases where substance abuse is an issue, alcohol monitoring services can provide verification of sobriety, which can be critical to assure safety and appropriate decisions involving child custody and placement.
Divorce Financial Specialists
Finances are one of the primary concerns in the majority of divorce cases. Divorce financial specialists can help facilitate collaborative solutions to these concerns. They can provide insight into the division of assets, retirement accounts, taxes, alimony, child support, long-term financial planning, and more.
