Negotiating property settlements is often the most complex and emotionally heated aspect of the divorce process. Also known as a marital separation agreement, a property settlement outlines all terms of the divorce, from the division of marital property to alimony to custody rights. While it can be difficult to negotiate an equitable property settlement, working with an experienced divorce financial mediator can streamline the process and help avoid the possibility of having to negotiate in court, which is a much more expensive and emotionally taxing experience than financial analysis mediation.
At Divorce Financial Solutions, we have extensive experience helping clients navigate their property settlements and negotiating agreements that are fair for both parties. Our property settlement consultant for divorcees, Veralynn Morris, has more than 30 years of experience providing financial assistance for divorce for clients in Montgomery County, Howard County, Frederick County, Washington County, Garrett County, and Carroll County negotiate settlement agreements that are in their best interest. With her extensive background in investment and financial planning, Veralynn takes a personal interest in every case and strives to truly get to know her clients so that she is able to effectively advocate on their behalf.
A property settlement agreement will include many considerations, including:
- Division of property
- Health insurance
- Tax issues
- Pension plans
- Child support payments
- Spousal support
- Sale or assignment of marital home
- Division of debts
Because a property settlement agreement governs all rights and provisions of the divorce, it is vitally important that the Marital Separation Agreement is equitable to both parties and that both parties feel comfortable with the settlement that has been reached. This is why it is so important to work with an experienced certified divorce financial analyst to help you reach a fair settlement. While a lawyer will be able to draw up the necessary legal contracts for your property settlement, because they are not trained in financial matters they will not be able to offer insight into the potential long-term implications of your proposed property settlement.
The financial implications of a divorce are quite serious, which is why it is so important to approach negotiations with verifiable facts in hands to help prevent emotions from ruling the process. A CDFA will be able to conduct financial assets discovery during divorce in order to develop a full picture of all marital assets that must be distributed. At Divorce Financial Solutions, Veralynn is also qualified to act as a financial mediator to help you and your ex navigate your property settlement agreement in an amicable and mutually beneficial manner in order to provide financial security for divorcees.
