Divorce is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. Ending a relationship, separating years of co-mingled assets, making very tough decisions with regard to guardianship. The entire process is fraught with peril, both emotionally and financially. There are important decisions to be made that will have long term implications on your life moving forward.
You need a financial counselor to be involved, someone who is familiar with the financial impact of these decisions, but more importantly is also very familiar with the tax code and can advise for the best tax treatment of these decisions. Our role is not to replace your attorney, but merely to serve as an adviser for both you and your attorney. In fact, in most cases, our services should be retained by the attorney directly to better enforce client privilege.
If you’re contemplating a divorce, or even if proceedings have started, please contact our office for a free consultation today.
