The emotions of divorce are vast and wide.  Nearly everyone who has ever asked for or been asked for a divorce feels similar feelings.   Lost. Scared. Lonely. Numb. Shaken. Sad. Angry. Bitter. Relieved. Excited. Angry. Shock. Hopeful.  Stuck. Ready. You could feel all of these in a single day.  Divorce is a roller coaster!!

Not a “one size fits all” process

The divorce process itself and the circumstances of divorce are as equally as varied.  Some couples are so amicable, we wonder why they are divorcing.  Some couples have become to 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 is a process with their dignity, sanity and estate is intact on the other side.

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 abusive relationship or you and your spouse are amicable, we can help you.

Plan for financial freedom

Has your spouse controlled the funds in your marriage?  Has you 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.

Spouse hiding money?

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 Master Analyst in Financial Forensics, we are 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 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?

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.

A softer, gentler process

Are you and your spouse equally comfortable with the house finances and want to end this divorce amicably?  If so, the Cooperative Divorce Financial Planning process is a venue for couples in this situation to walk through the divorce process in a softer, gentler fashion.  Attorney’s are still involved (this is a legal process) but the parties are in control of the outcome.  Through financial expert led sessions and with the support of legal counsel, the parties will decide the outcome for their family as it relates to their finances.

Divorce is as complex as the parties involved.  It’s important to have the right team on your side.
