I frequently suggest to my clients that they have a support network around them. Divorce is extremely traumatic. You need someone else to turn to. While an attorney is a professional from whom you need to seek help, they can only give legal advice. I frequently suggest to my clients that they speak with a counselor, or a social worker, as well as an accountant, so that they will understand all their financial needs, helping them reach their financial goals at the end of the divorce. Getting divorced is really a team effort, and our clients are the center—or the captain--of our team.
