10 Top Financial Tips for DivorceSubmitted by JM Financial Planning, LLC on September 29th, 2017
1. CONSIDER DELAYING HIRING THE ATTORNEYS
Jumping right into the fight isn't smart. Look at meeting with a Certified Divorce Planner, Mediator or a Collaborative Attorney. This newer approach saves time and money, and perhaps your relationships. The truth is, you need a "team", and usually a good CDFA or Mediator can help you assemble one. Locality should not be your only criteria. See who offers a full-fledged financial plan. Consider your retirement, taxes and inflation, and many CDFA's, Mediators and CPA's do not evaluate the long-term financial effects of your divorce settlement.
