Southwick, MA – Divorce can be difficult even when both parties agree. The division of assets – house, all property, money, retirement funds, everything that has worth – is one of the most difficult issues that must be decided. According to a recent study conducted by Forbes, the average cost of a contested divorce ranges from $15,000 to $30,000, with most of that money spent on legal fees.
It’s true what they say: “Divorce is hell.” But should you choose to file for divorce, there is a way to make the process more manageable, both financially and emotionally, and protect you from the nefarious practices of divorce attorneys.
Freda Brown is the founder of Divorce Financial Services. As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), Freda works with individuals and couples in divorce to navigate the financial issues associated with the division of marital assets and help them reach a settlement that is financially equitable for both parties.
“Anyone who is thinking about divorce should speak to a financial advisor first,” says Freda.
As a CDFA, Freda can assist in the preparation of financial statements, look for inconsistencies in your spouse’s financial statement, and determine the possible tax consequences associated with the division of property, property notes, pensions, retirement, alimony and child support.
Most importantly, however, Freda helps both parties rebuild their lives on reasonable financial information and planning.
“Everyone’s finances are completely different. Everyone has a different story and different problems, so you can’t take a cookie-cutter approach to a divorce,” says Freda.
