If you are a busy career woman who is in the midst of an emotionally-charged divorce you might be dealing with several issues that you had never expected to face.   This is especially difficult for those of you who once had a clear and firm plan for your financial future.  You took the time to work with your spouse to ensure that the both of you and your children would be financially secure.

Now everything’s changed.

No matter whether the divorce was your idea or something thrust upon you, you now are wondering what tomorrow will look like – much less the rest of your financial life.  You might be tempted to accept the first settlement proposal suggested by your divorce attorney or by your spouse’s attorney just to get things over with.  As tempting as this may be, you should take your time with making these critical decisions because, for the most part, they cannot be undone.

Getting through the financial issues is often the toughest part of a divorce.  But it doesn’t have to be this way.  Meeting with a Divorce Financial Strategist™ (a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst [CDFA™] with advanced training in divorce financial planning strategies and asset protection) can ensure your financial protection now and in the future by helping you fully understand the financial and tax implications of your proposed divorce settlement.

Here are some of the ways a Divorce Financial Strategist™ or Certified Divorce Financial Analyst can help you:
