← Getting Divorced

Assemble your team

Getting a divorce is difficult no matter where you are in the process, and you shouldn’t have to go through it alone. This is why building a support team for divorce to help you navigate the emotional, legal, and financial aspects is so important at the beginning of your journey.



An attorney will provide extensive legal knowledge and support. Divorce attorneys are professionals who understand divorce laws and what you are entitled to receive by law. To get the most beneficial terms possible out of your divorce (including child support, asset division, and child custody), work with a competent lawyer.

Financial Advisor

Financial Advisor

A financial advisor is an essential member of your divorce team, even to confer with in the early stages. They can help navigate the complexities of your finances when it comes to accounting for and splitting assets. They can provide stability when discussing the financial trade offs involved in a divorce.



Individual therapy is a place separate from legal negotiations where you can process the emotional issues of divorce. You are likely to make better judgements and decisions about access to children and financial settlements when you’re clear about how you feel and what is best for you emotionally.

Support Squad

Just like a sports team has individual players who fill different positions, your divorce team will be made up of not only professionals, but...

Friends and Family can be a safe place to turn to when going through this transition. Don’t be afraid to reconnect with old friends you may have lost contact with over the years.

A real estate agent is an important contact to discuss the value of your current home and alternative options moving forward, before any decisions are made.
