If you’re going through a divorce, you’ve probably been overwhelmed with an enormous amount of advice from family, friends and people who say that they “understand exactly what you are going through” or that they have “been there before”. While turning to friends and family for emotional support can be extremely beneficial, going to them for financial advice might lead to disaster.
When career-oriented individuals in high-profile roles encounter divorce, looking to family and friends for money advice might not be the best idea. Here’s why:
1. You need someone with an objective point of view, and family and friends are almost always going to be biased.
2. You need help from someone with a background in finance and divorce, and most people’s friends and family don’t have years of experience dealing with the finances in divorce settlement agreements.
So, who exactly should you look to when you need someone with a keen sense of money management and stellar negotiation skills? Your best bet is to consult with an attorney, but not just any attorney will suffice. Make sure you look for a divorce attorney with a background in money management who is associated with a full-service law firm. When you retain an attorney, you are also retaining that attorney’s law firm. Therefore, why not get more bang for your buck and retain a divorce attorney with a background in finances, who also works at a firm with small business and estate planning attorneys.
Because of the depth and breadth of services that they offer, full-service mid-size law firms can be extremely beneficial for entrepreneurs and small business owners filing for divorce in Arizona.
