Our team of experienced financial experts — and specifically our Certified Divorce Financial Analyst — can refer you to our trusted network of divorce attorneys and tax professionals.

Questions to consider when facing the possibility of divorce:
- Will the other party contribute to some type of college funding account?
- What are my total current assets?
- What is my income right now? What are my prospects for future earnings?
- Does it add value to be in the workplace right now? If so, is there help to determine what my strengths would be?
- How do I find a good divorce attorney that I can trust?
- Will I need some type of additional counseling or support?
- What are some good lifestyle habits that will help me cope with this process?
- Who do I consider my support system and transition team?
