Q: Can you help me make a financial proposal to my spouse?
We can analyze your family assets, debts, income, and expenses in order to help you craft a proposal on how to treat each of these elements in a divorce. We have insight into the range of settlement options, on assets, debts, spousal maintenance (also called alimony), and child support, and the tax ramifications of these issues.
Q: Do you work with my spouse and me or can I work with you alone?
We can work with either or both of you. There are ethical constraints on how both spouses are treated, which are covered in an initial appointment.
Q: Can you help me with legal forms?
We’re not attorneys, so we don’t do legal work. But we can help you with the required financial disclosures. And we can refer you to attorneys who can either consult with you or represent you in your case. Even an amicable divorce is a legal matter, so it’s not a good time to scrimp on the cost of getting it done right.
