We Work To Put You On Solid Financial Footing

It is important to realize that so many of these assets appreciate, and it is critical to consider basis reporting. Some assets, too, are not divisible and others should be carefully divided, particularly if they are liquid as opposed to those that have deferred value or are otherwise discounted for tax impacts. Likewise, certain compensation plans are not divisible in a court order.

Failure to properly plan and distribute the assets can have devastating financial consequences if the appropriate choices are not made. We encourage you to reach out as soon as possible so that we can begin assessing your situation and helping you make sound financial choices.
