  1. Divorce can be a tumultuous time and if not managed properly, can be one of the most financially devastating life events. The process can be emotional and intense and the financial decisions you make during this time might be some of the most important economic decisions of your life. It is imperative to understand your complete financial situation. Knowledge and preparation will be crucial to your creating a sound financial agreement.

    • We agree wholeheartedly. This is why we make sure to say throughout our blog that an attorney should be consulted if need be. We hope this whole process can be as amicable as possible, however, and understanding your finances are crucial. Thanks for your input.
