Post-Divorce Financial Planning

If you’re looking at freshly signed divorce papers and wondering what happens next, you are not alone.

With this new beginning come many new opportunities. It’s time to start answering the questions swirling in your head, like:

  • How will I invest the money I received in my settlement?
  • Do I need to adjust my lifestyle to allow for my reduced income?
  • Can I still afford to save for the future?
  • How much should I save for the future?
  • Will I still be able to retire?

These are the most common questions we hear from clients just after they settle.

As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ (CDFA®), I’m trained in the financial and tax implications of divorce, and I’ll help guide some of the key decisions you’ll make after your case is settled. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional (CFP®), I’m trained in the areas of financial planning, insurance, investments, retirement plans, income tax, and estate planning — so we can address everything that comes afterward too.


Navigating the first few months after your divorce is final can be challenging. Why not work with a professional who has already helped other women emerge successful and confident?
