Settle Your Divorce with a Compassionate and Experienced Expert
Berni Stevens PhD, CDC®, CDFA®
Certified Divorce Financial Analyst
As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®) I am uniquely qualified to do the evaluation and synthesis that will generate your best financial outcome. I will guide you in gathering needed information, conduct the analyses, develop settlement scenarios, generate reports, and work with you to produce an optimal settlement, avoiding costly mistakes and preserving more of what you own.
As a trained divorce coach, I’ll be your ally and champion before, during, and after your divorce. I will guide you through the difficult times and the many tasks and decisions of divorce, bringing invaluable knowledge and experience to facilitate the co-creation of successful strategies and solutions that honor who you are and your unique situation. You will feel good about your choices as you make them and for years to come.
Provider of Assistance in the Legal Process
I’m not an attorney. I can, though, provide general guidance on the process and requirements in your jurisdiction if you want to go the DIY route for filing and finalizing your divorce. Alternatively, I’ll have one of my trusted attorney partners prepare the Settlement Agreement and handle court filings–inexpensively and without your personal involvement.
When Mediation is the Best Choice for Your Divorce
You both agree to end your marriage and move on
You’re reasonable and can sit at a table together and discuss the situation. You want to avoid a costly court battle. Perhaps you’re thinking you don’t even need a mediator, per se. Regardless, you just don’t know where to start or how to deal with some of the details. Your children are grown or you are in agreement on how to handle custody. You and your partner need financial guidance and maybe some help in negotiating the details of a settlement.
You want an amicable asset division
You might have investments, retirement accounts, executive compensation, businesses, pensions, rental properties, etc. How do you divide these in a way that’s fair and equitable and won’t get you into tax trouble?
It’s possible that some creativity could save both of you taxes and you both get to keep more of your own money. Would you like to be able to see in black and white how a settlement could impact your future? Perhaps one of you hasn’t worked to full capacity in the past and will need financial help getting back into your career. What’s the right amount?
