For most, getting divorced is usually a first - and hopefully the only experience of this kind. This means that when it comes to divorce, the vast majority of people are novices - especially when it comes to understanding the financial, legal and practical implications of splitting up. And even for those who have had some prior experience with the divorcing process, the emotional impact of dealing with the divorce at hand still makes it difficult to be objective and keep a level head about the important decisions that need to be made.

Since the divorcing process can be stressful, complicated, lengthy and often expensive, we feel it is best that people getting a divorce not go through it alone. And given the current economic recession, now it is even more important that people going through a divorce utilize their resources wisely.

Who needs a strategic divorce planner?

Not everyone getting a divorce needs a strategic divorce planner. In fact, the vast majority of divorces are settled by agreement and without having to go to trial.

On the other hand, this does not mean that 96% of divorce cases are all settled without court involvement. Attorneys report that more than half of all divorces they handle are contested. This means that in about half of all divorce cases, there is a dispute or disagreement between the parties involved concerning any number of issues.

Most disputes seem to center on finances, custody and access. In these cases some form of court intervention occurs usually in the form of court orders for financial disclosure, methods of evaluating assets and liabilities, and/or custody and access.
