Divorce litigation is a type of divorce dispute resolution, perhaps the most commonly known. This process involves submitting issues to family court in order to resolve them, and most communication is done through representative attorneys. Divorcing couples often choose litigation if they aren’t able to reach an agreement through other methods.
As a CDFA® in a litigation context, Brenda works with one of the parties to advise on “what-if” scenarios, educate them about the process and its financial implications and play out different scenarios during negotiation.
The benefit of an individual working with Brenda as a CDFA® is parties are informed and educated about agreements that can impact them for years – even decades – to come. Frequently it’s more efficient to work with Brenda as a specialist partner to attorneys, helping to keep costs down and achieve a higher level of literacy regarding financial decisions one is making. in her role as CDFA®, Brenda also works toward crafting alternative solutions based on goals and helping to move the process forward rather than getting stuck in an expensive and time-consuming stand-off.
Lastly, in Brenda’s work as a CDFA® she helps level set expectations throughout the process so individuals know what may or may not be acceptable but the court and reasonable in discussions. Working from this point of view – resolution instead of winning and losing can ultimately save clients thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.
