"How do I know whether I need a financial planner or Certified Divorce Financial Analyst for my divorce?"

A financial reorganization can be challenging at any time. When we add the stress and uncertainty that accompanies divorce and separation, a reliable financial expert or analyst can assist your deliberations and strategic planning. There is a big difference between complexity and complication. Accredited financial planners working with the lawyer and client can often eliminate many complicating factors arising from a great many details including accounting principles, income-tax treatment, pension evaluation and computer-database assumptions.

Lawyers should be vigilant in organizing the best resources around their clients' decision-making. In terms of dispute resolution, increasing reliable information can often reduce the prospect of conflict. New computer models can generate long-term property and support profiles that illustrate how settlement plans work for both spouses over the decades. This enables a wise and durable settlement. That's why an increasing number of divorcing people are opting for this type of more detailed financial workup.
