Divorce Financial Planning & Analysis

Worried how much the divorce will really cost you?

Don’t let it turn your life upside down. When you lead with financial facts, your relationships and post-divorce lifestyle don’t have to take a hit.

Uncoupling with your partner doesn’t have to mean an expensive lawsuit, burning bridges, or anxiety about maintaining your wealth and well-being.

Divorce Analytics empowers you with objective financial facts that untangle joint finances and clearly outline what happens to the marital home and other property, spousal and child support, debt management, investment dividends, and other key factors.

Fact: A win-win settlement isn’t just about agreeing to split everything 50-50. Our clients make the best decisions when they know how much their post-divorce life actually costs.

This service is perfect for you if: 

  • You’re wondering whether you’ll be able to maintain the same standard of living post-divorce
  • You’re experiencing conflicting emotions and need objective support to be able to focus on the facts
  • You feel confused about how to advocate for your family’s financial future in settlement sessions, and your attorney can’t answer your financial questions
  • You want to get as much clarity about your current and future financial situation as possible to make informed decisions every step of the way

Our approach

What happens when we partner with you


Uncovering the real cost of divorce

The most complicated part of the process is the finances. We bring a family's financial reality into sharp focus by itemizing marital and separate assets, taxes, debt, household expenses, and individual contributions.

This data forms the foundation of our post-divorce lifestyle analysis report and informs the negotiation strategy.


 Formulating a settlement negotiation strategy

With the numbers crunched, the settlement terms become clear for financial and non-financial issues. At this stage, we also create a customized Divorce Impact Analysis Report to compare different settlement options.

Our goal in this stage is to push for a faster resolution or draft a more equitable settlement proposal and reduce the animosity between the two parties. If relevant, we provide relevant guidance and education to bring our clients up to speed with their financial education.


 Collaborating with the legal team

If your divorce is at the litigation stage, the attorney and the divorce finance strategist must be on the same page.

We provide attorneys with high-level and detailed financial truths to come up with the most persuasive arguments to honor that truth and advocate for our clients’ rights. Having the financial facts enhances the quality of counsel our clients receive before a litigated negotiation.


 White glove negotiation support

Negotiation sessions are dynamic, and the offer on the table may change during the discussion. While our clients are more confident after partnering with us, there may be curve balls they’re not equipped to handle.

To empower them to make informed decisions at every step, we show up as expert sounding boards and provide real-time analysis in settlement sessions.

Our goal is to arm our clients with financial facts before the mediation session or court date in case of litigated settlements and review them together to proceed with a clear picture of a family’s financial future.

Essentially, having all the financial facts - whether you’re at the mediation stage or have initiated litigation - can make all the difference between confidently advocating for your family’s future and accepting an unfair deal under pressure.

When you start working with us, we will share a 4-page guide detailing which financial statements we need from you, depending on your assets.

Overall, we need historical lifestyle data and documentation around joint assets, retirement and pension funds, tax data, and household expenses to come up with divorce financial analysis reports that uncover the real cost of the uncoupling.
