There are many emotions divorcees feel after the divorce negotiation is complete and the judge signs the decree. One emotion you might not expect is frustration with all that needs to be done after the divorce is finalized. From alimony not being paid after death because the life insurance policy was never setup to assets being transferred to an ex-spouse post-mortem, we have seen the negative effects of lack of follow through on enforcing financial agreements reached in divorce proceedings.
After the divorce you will need a financial planner to help you sort out the assets you receive. A financial planner can show you the impact this will have with your long-term financial goals. If you need a recommendation, please speak with one of our advisors.
