Imagine a Different Way to Divorce  

Many of us know family, friends and co-workers who have been negatively affected by a bad separation or divorce situation.  Imagine how much better off those people would be if they had been able to use a
"different way to divorce."

Financial Divorce Solutions
works with those facing a separation or divorce situation and uses a process that helps to reach a mutually acceptable agreement.  The process is supportive, considerate, sensible, constructive and allows for the management of conflict.

Five Big Mistakes 
Here are a few things to avoid.
  • Trying to reach an agreement before full disclosure has been completed. 
  • Making decisions based on emotions, whether it is from anger, sadness, guilt or fear. 
  • Using family and friends to gather information and then basing the big decisions on these 'experts'.
  • Focusing on winning at all costs, because no one really wins in a separation/divorce.
  • Rushing things just to get it done and using family law professionals in the wrong way.
Five Helpful Tips
Here are a few things that can help.
  • Make informed decisions based on neutral third party information. 
  • Seek support for the emotional side of things. 
  • Use the right experts for the right reason, lawyers are not therapist and therapists are not legal experts and neither of these professions are financial experts.
  • Focus on finding the best possible mutually acceptable outcome.
  • Take your time before deciding and acting, yet ensure you are moving forward.
