Understanding All of Your Financial Options Reduces Stress and Conflict During Divorce

To say divorce is shattering is an understatement. Without the right help, you may never put all the pieces back together – which will stop you from moving on with your life. At ANEW Divorce Planning, we help you piece your financial future together by giving you guidance before, during, and after your divorce. Our step-by-step process creates a plan and order in a difficult, emotional time to help you:

  • Sort out the pieces, determining which ones are essential to your long-term financial well- being and which are unimportant
  • Put the essential pieces together to create your new life after divorce.

Before Divorce

There are several divorce-process options for you to consider, including: litigation, mediation, negotiation, and collaboration.  We will help you understand all the options, and the differences between them, so you can make an informed choice about the process that’s best for your unique situation.

After choosing how you will process your divorce, you need to choose the right professional to work with you. We canprovide a referral to one or more trusted professionals, or we can work with one you’ve already chosen.

You may not be knowledgeable about your family’s financial situation – and that can be scary for you. Especially if your spouse was the one who managed the money in your relationship, you may not know much about your family’s investments, debts, tax, and credit situation. We will help you gather the missing puzzle pieces and help you understand how they fit together to create a “Big Picture”: explaining and demystifying your family’s financial situation in an easy-to-understandway so that you know what you own and what you owe.

During Divorce

We can help with challenging tasks such as gathering documentation – and then analyzing those documents to get a clear picture of your unique situation. We’ll perform a cash-flow analysis to help you understand your budget needs, and work with you to create a realistic budget going forward so that you can accomplish all of your financial goals.

If your “divorce puzzle” requires it, we can bring in other experts for issues concerning health insurance, mortgages, business valuation, and parenting plans. We’ll work with input from your other professionals to illustrate the impact of various financial settlements – both short and long-term.

We can review strategies for negotiations with you and your lawyer, and make recommendations about division of assets that are in-line with your goals – and that will also help reduce the tax you’ll have to pay.

We’ll keep you informed every step of the way, and help generate financial options that will work for your family. We can save time and reduce arguments during negotiations by showing both sides what their financial futures will look like if they accept “Settlement A” or  “Settlement B”.

 After Divorce

We can provide ongoing advice and support, making sure nothing gets missed or overlooked after your divorce is final. We can provide assistance with transfers, beneficiary changes, the movement of assets and other financial issues after divorce.You can relax, knowing we’ll make sure that no puzzle pieces have been lost or forgotten during and after the divorce process.

  • Can I afford to get divorced?
  • How will I pay my bills?
  • Will I have to move?
  • Will I qualify for a mortgage on my own?
  • Who will the kids live with?

  • How do we value our property?
  • Who gets what property?
  • How do we divide retirement funds and future pensions?
