Your divorce may be final, but challenges often continue,
including unsold houses, legal adjustments and retirement planning.
Panelists include Financial Planner, Therapist, Realtor and Family Law Attorney
Recorded live August 18, 2015
Our panel of experts discuss financial issues that can keep you from moving ahead, post-divorce.
“After a divorce, a new set of challenges must be tackled. Just because the paperwork is signed, there are still decisions that must be made to ensure you have control of your future,” says David Ragland. “Knowing what to expect and taking the necessary steps can make a huge difference both short and long term.”
“For example, during a divorce, so many people think they want to keep the house,” adds Steven Parker. “Later, you receive a financial wake-up call and panic. However, there are solutions that can keep you from being overwhelmed and help you get back on track."
As Kelly Reese says, “After going through the process of a divorce, the last thing you want to deal with is post-judgment issues. Knowing the tools and tips that you can do to help make post-judgment issues smoother, will hopefully, result in less time and expense.”
“After divorce is the time when most people experience a higher need for stress-relief and ease in daily living. Our mental reserves are quite low at this time, and having someone to guide you through ways to relieve stress is imperative," concludes Liza Reed.
The goal of our free webinars is to help educate you: there is no obligation, no follow-up sales pitch and no hidden surprises. We view this as a service that allows us to bring together experts for the benefit of all who are interested.
