Nobody ever said divorce was pretty. But experts’ estimate that nearly 50% of American marriages end in divorce indicates that the experience certainly is human.
Why Divorce/Separation Planning is Important
When two people, once joined by marriage, head off in new directions, each of them will encounter change and uncertainty, a possible intermingling or rotation of anxiety and excitement, and, of course, big financial shifts. Having someone to prepare and guide them in making the best possible decisions can affect the rest of their lives.
And that’s where our Divorce (and Separation) Planning service can help.
