Our divorce pre-planning process


 Data gathering and organization

Our clients choose us for our objective and fact-based approach, as well as our ability to provide a clear guideline for what’s needed. As a first step, we gather all relevant financial statements and data so we can determine which assets belong to an individual spouse and which assets are marital property.

This part of the process paves the way to identify critical issues to resolve and prepares them for the next step: bringing their financial reality into sharp focus.


 Divorce Impact Analysis Report

Next, this data is meticulously analyzed to prepare a customized Divorce Impact Analysis Report. This report aims to itemize and project the value of both parties’ financial assets, investments, and the cost of each spouse’s post-divorce lifestyle.

These reports are theoretical and provide a baseline to guide key decisions in the uncoupling process. The specific line items on the report also inform them about how much they can ask for or offer in the divorce settlement.


 Divorce guidance and financial coaching

The Divorce Impact Analysis provides clarity and direction for the level of support our clients need from us. We prepare a roadmap to help organize the financial data and suggestions for the client to move forward in the divorce process.

Part of the coaching service includes engineering a customized communication strategy to avoid conflicts when presenting the idea of divorce to the other party. If desired, we can advise on the most suitable divorce method for our client and identify a timeline for the next steps.

We also equip our clients with sustainable wealth retention strategies to increase their cash flow's longevity and ensure a seamless financial transition to a post-divorce lifestyle.

FAQs

1. Can I share the Divorce Impact Analysis report with my attorney?

Yes. These reports ensure your attorney has all the financial background information to craft the best legal and settlement strategy for you based on real-time, customized data. Attorneys are well-versed in legal matters, and financial analysis isn’t part of their legal training. For this reason, it makes sense to have a financial expert provide this information to the attorney.

2. How does the divorce pre-planning service differ from the Divorce Financial Planning and Analysis service?

The Divorce Financial Planning and Analysis service is for you if you have already filed for divorce and need our assistance in negotiating the most suitable settlement options based on financial facts. If this is the stage you are in, visit the Divorce Financial Planning and Analysis service page. The Divorce Pre-Planning service is ideal for people speculating about the cost of getting a divorce or how to ask for a divorce peacefully. The financial facts we provide are helpful estimates that determine whether they’re financially ready to get divorced, their post-divorce life, whether they need to return to work, and other pressing questions.
