“I’m not certain my lawyer has a good handle on the financial aspects of my divorce; I’m not convinced I’m getting my fair share. What should I do?”
This is your divorce and your future, so be proactive. If you feel that your concerns have not been resolved after meeting with your attorney, hire a financial professional, then inform your attorney that this individual is part of your team. Remember, you are the client and it is your money.
