Use our financial analysis process A.G.R.E.E.™ to secure a fair and equitable settlement that gives you both a foundation for moving forward with your lives. Our process also addresses settlement issues regarding children.
A – Accept & Accelerate the process
G – Get agreement through understanding the financials
R – Remove emotion by clarifying the financials
E – Everyone is considered (you, them, kids, pets)
E – Every dollar counts
We apply negotiation science while working with both parties. This is a rational, smart, equitable way to divide the assets you’ve built to this point. Many divorcing couples lose their assets to the broken family law litigation system. Don’t be one of them.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- My spouse wants a divorce and I do not. Can you help us?
We can help you once you have both accepted that the divorce will go forward. Starting negotiation before acceptance tends to prolong the process and adds to your expenses.
2. What’s the first step?
We will send you a list by email of the documents we need to review. We will have a working meeting (cost is $350 and is applied toward future services) and you will leave the meeting with an overview of assets, income, parenting issues, and a schedule for using the A.G.R.E.E.™ process
3. How do I work with you?
We insist on transparency with both parties and apply negotiation science to guide you both toward a reasonable, fair, and equitable settlement.
4. How are you different from mediation, collaborative, or court divorce?
All three of those methods involve multiple expensive professionals who have no obligation to save you time or money. In fact, they have a built in conflict to prolong the process. Our firm is dedicated to putting the financial analysis ahead of position bargaining through attorneys.
5. How long will it take to get a settlement?
It depends on how long it takes two parties to come to an agreement, however, we pause our analysis saving you money until you are ready to continue negotiations.
6. Can I use an attorney if I want to?
Of course. We encourage the use of an attorney to review your final settlement to ensure it legally achieves the financial outcome you have agreed on and to ensure that nuisance parenting clauses are addressed so that effective co-parenting can occur post settlement.
7. I want to make my spouse ‘pay’. What can you do for me?
Not much. We abhor the adversarial approach and believe that assets should be preserved for splitting between the couple who built them.
8. My spouse and I agree on most of our settlement. Why would we still need your services?
We recommend you use our scenarios to understand both the time value of money and tax impact on the decisions you are contemplating.
9. My family and friends are telling me things to do. Shouldn’t I let them help me?
Friends and family can be critical support during divorce. Unless they are professional financial experts, we encourage you to rely on them for emotional support rather than professional financial advice.
10. If we’re able to be fair with each other and both end up with a financial foundation to build on, do we have to hire you to manage our accounts?
All clients sign a Conflict of Interest letter noting that you are free to have your accounts managed in any way and place you desire post settlement.
