What if I don’t understand the money situation well enough?

Each client in a Collaborative Divorce needs to have a solid grasp of the finances. If this is new territory, the financial specialist and attorney can help, by simplifying and summarizing what is at stake and helping the client prepare for the financial negotiation.

This preparation may include weighing options regarding residence and employment, managing one’s budget and debt, figuring out how much support is reasonable, and planning for retirement.
