Financial Planning as a Part of Your Divorce

Ironically, divorce is one of those few moments in life when our finances becomes front and central.  You are going to account for all of your money, debts and assets like you never have before or ever will again. 
At the end of this process, there is likely to be a lump sum of money that is going to be coming your way. It must be handled with wisdom.
If you’re not familiar with how the money flows in and out of the family coffers it’s time to step up to plate. Speak with a divorce financial planner that understands exactly where you are at this moment.
