What is a Financial Divorce Specialist?

Going through separation or divorce can have a massive impact on a couple’s finances.

These couples need fair, objective, and easy-to-understand advice that ensures they make the decisions that are right for them.

Professional Financial Planning

I help you understand if you can afford to separate, how to most fairly divide your assets, and how to plan for your long-term financial future.

Objective Advice

Money is the most common cause of dispute for couples. Once you add in the stress of separation, it can be challenging to make sound financial decisions.

I show you the potential ripple effects your decision will have—whether you decide to separate or stay together.

Open Communication

Every relationship features two completely different personalities, two different sets of values, and two visions for the future—making it challenging and frustrating to make decisions togther.

A divorce financial advisor makes sure you and your partner are on the same page, because everyone needs to be at the same starting point before making potentially life-altering decisions.

Overall, I provide divorce financial planning that helps couples in British Columbia plan their new future.

Why use a Divorce Financial Planner?

Here’s why every British Columbia couple considering separation should consult a divorce financial planner:

Make a United Decision

Most separating couples want to make financial decisions that won’t negatively impact their children, family, or friends.

But making financial decisions alone or through divorce lawyers can cause a permanent rift in a family.

I help couples make smart, mutually agreeable decisions together.

Unbiased Financial Advice

Unlike a lawyer, I work for both members in a couple. I help couples make decisions that benefit the entire family as a whole.

Lower Divorce Costs

Divorce lawyers are expensive. Back-and-forth negotiations can quickly add up in hourly fees.

Divorce financial advisors can craft separation agreements that can be taken to a divorce lawyer—saving couples potentially thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Reduce Stress

Sound, professional advice in a moment of need can go a long way to reduce stress.

I make sure you are listened to and cared for, while providing an objective viewpoint that gives you a broader perspective on your future.
