“What are 5 things people who are somewhere in the divorce process should think about?”
- Avoid deciding financial issues piecemeal instead of understanding the big picture.
- Do not allow your former spouse to use financial data as a weapon against you. The cost of divorce proceedings can be directly correlated to the amount of time and effort it takes to level the information playing field “discovery”.
- Budget, Budget, Budget
- Do cost benefit and risk versus reward analysis with your CDFA and attorney
- Understand that not all lawyers are skilled in resolving disputes. They are always trained to create and escalate them. Dispute resolution is a whole different world.
