Comments

Proudly serving the Ashburn, VA area for 9 years.

I am a unique financial divorce analyst! I devote 100% of my time to helping people prepare for separation and divorce so they are organized, educated and focused and make smart decisions.

Knowledge is critical when it comes to the financial issues during divorce negotiations, mediation and litigation. That's where I can help. I make confusion clear by providing clients with complete and accurate information about their personal financial situation. This enables them to understand their options and make smart decisions. I've been in the business of navigating this process for 23 years. Let's navigate this together. WHAT I DO: Organize, Educate and Focus I remove uncertainty and stress by calculating financial facts. I guide clients through the financial issues of the divorce process. I prepare reports of assets, debts, income, expenses and taxes. I provide child and spousal support calculations to the client and their attorney. I create reports showing future standard of living. I analyze all assets including pensions, stock options, employer benefits and survivor benefits for pension plans. I trace growth on separate contributions to assets.

In 9 US states, a divorce could mean losing half of everything you own

When a couple joins as one, their assets typically combine to form a marital estate, and anything they acquire thereafter becomes joint property. Upon divorce, those assets — including real estate, dependent children, income, cars, furniture, investments, and retirement accounts — get divided between the former spouses.

If you and your spouse can't agree on how to divide all or part of your assets when you get divorced, there are two ways they could be divided, depending where you live.
