DIVORCE OPTIONS & SERVICES
FIND THE RIGHT OPTION FOR YOUR FAMILY
The divorce process, the people involved, and the circumstances of divorce are incredibly varied. Some couples are so amicable we wonder why they are divorcing. Some couples have become so embittered with each other they cannot be in the same room together for years. No matter where you are or what process you use for your divorce, it’s not anything you should have to endure alone.
As a former divorcee who has been through the divorce process myself, it’s my goal to help others walk through this process with their dignity, sanity and estate intact.
Because divorce is not a “one size fits all” process, we have a menu of services we offer to help a wide variety of people in multiple circumstances. Whether you are in an antagonistic relationship or you and your spouse are amicable, we can help you.
Plan for Financial Freedom – Divorce Financial Advocacy
Has your spouse controlled the funds in your marriage? Has your spouse kept you out of the finances and in the dark on what you own? We provide “equalization” services to the spouse who has not traditionally had access to the money. We help people in those situations understand what they own and help them create a plan for financial freedom and peace of mind after the divorce. We will walk beside you to help you make wise financial decisions.
Are you the monied spouse and worried you’ll have to give up half of your life’s work? We can tax effect your estate and give you options to save as much of your life’s earnings in the division as possible.
Spouse Hiding Money – Divorce Forensic Financial Services
Do you think you spouse is hiding money? That may be so. While we cannot guarantee we will find your lost funds, we are specialist in this research. As a Master Analyst in Financial Forensics through the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts, Denise French is trained to find money when it’s being hidden. We will search through tax returns, W2’s, paystubs, boxes of documents our clients have kept through the years, etc. to help you find your lost funds.
Did you start your job before you were married? If so, you may have funds that are your “separate property” and not technically divided in the marital estate. We can calculate how much of those funds are separate property per the state code and provide evidential reports to substantiate your separate property claims.
Do You Own a Business – Business Valuation Services
We provide specialty business services including valuation of the business and post-divorce business planning. We own a business too and have had the personal experience of divorcing with a family business. We understand what you are going through, and we can help you. We provide not only traditional business valuation services for court, but also lower costs, mediation ready business valuations. Denise French is a Certified Valuation Analyst through the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts.
