Divorce & Your Money

Divorce is considered a life-changing event and can be one of the most significant financial transactions surrounding a marriage’s dissolution. Usually, when you are thinking about or going thru your divorce journey, many women will immediately find a divorce attorney. But, additionally, you also need to think about a divorce’s financial implications and speak with a certified financial planner—specifically, a certified divorce financial analyst. Working with a CDFA can be very valuable and help set you up for financial independence post-divorce.

It is essential to know your and your spouse’s assets, liabilities, and expenses. Going thru a divorce, you will need to be making decisions that will have a significant impact on your current and future financial situation, including your earnings and retirement. Being financially educated about your circumstances will set the stage for your financial future.
