Additionally, we offer financial planning support both during and after the divorce proceedings have concluded.
We recognize that divorce is often a complex and emotionally charged process. The conventional route often involves hiring attorneys who represent individual parties and advocate for their respective interests, but they are likely not financial experts.

Do You Really Need
to Start with a Lawyer?
Divorce is about the division of assets, child support, and spousal support. Technically, all three involve finances, but the latter two are less complex and more legal in nature. Division of assets is much better trusted by financial experts to find a fair balance based on lifestyle and true financial insight, including tax laws, investment strategy, and budgeting.

“After several months of unsuccessful negotiations between my lawyer and my husband’s attorney I brought the team at Your Divorce Made Simple in to help create a budget, assist with a fair division of assets and help with mediation negotiations. Additionally, they were able to assist me with the financial aspects of my ex-husband’s business and prepare endless financial documents around the division of assets in preparation for the court where she was an expert witness. Not only did they help me through the more than 2 years I was waiting to finalize my divorce, but they helped me get on a solid financial foundation after the divorce was finalized.”
My attorney suggested I use the team at Your Divorce Made Simple to help with the division of assets while going through divorce. They helped with planning and divorce negotiations, in the beginning, to see if we could divide our marital assets amicably with an attorney or mediation. By sitting down with Amy and Eric we were able to successfully negotiate the division of assets and used the attorney to draw up the legal documents and file the court paperwork. Expenses for this ended up being less than $6K and my ex-husband and I were able to finalize the agreement within weeks.
“Everyone’s divorce is unique. But every divorce has three elements – emotional, legal and financial. This is why my attorney suggested I hire Amy Colton of Your Divorce Made Simple to assist with the financial and tax aspects of divorce. Most people use their attorney for financial advice but they are not financial professionals and often don’t give sound advice. Having a team that worked together on the financial and legal components of my divorce gave me the confidence I was getting the best advice possible. This team approach was clearly in my best interest. Not only did Amy help me through my divorce but she was able to set me on a good financial path for the future as I started the next chapter of my life. She gave me peace of mind and helped me transition out of a long term marriage to having a plan for the next stage of my life. Knowing I had her to help me made me sleep better at night.”
