Will the custody arrangement affect child support? How can the retirement accounts be split and the money accessed? How can a business be offset? Should a business be valued? What is the value of health care benefits? Most important of all, will the clients be able to financially survive (and thrive) with the settlement post divorce? Join me for a discussion of what you need to know and what to ask your financial advisor and attorney.
