COVID-19 UPDATE: We are open and working to support our clients. We are now offering virtual and in person meetings depending on your comfort level.  We are following the most current recommendations regarding social distancing and masks. If you would like our vaccinated staff to wear masks, we will gladly do so on your request.

Mediated Divorces

During a mediated divorce, we can act as a financial neutral and prepare options that provide for the future of your family.

Collaborative Divorces

During a collaborative divorce we are one of your team members, providing financial calculations for the team to understand what different settlement options would mean for you now and in the future.

Financial Advocate for Litigation

In a litigated divorce we act as your financial advocate and expert witness, working to provide the most advantageous options for consideration and providing your attorney powerful data to support your case.

A La Carte Calculations

Do you have a specific financial question, need individual evaluations, or want to see the impact of settlement changes?  We can provide specific calculations to support your case such as pension valuations, separate property tracing, or a lump-sum buyout of spousal support.

Post-Divorce Financial Planning

After your divorce or dissolution is finalized, we provide financial planning through our sister company, Feldmeyer Financial Group to help you plan for the next phase of your life.

WHO WE ARE

When so much is at stake and you only have one chance to get it right, it is imperative to make informed choices during your divorce.  We strive to help you make better, more informed decisions such as whether to keep your marital home, how to split up retirement savings, or if you should consider taking a lump sum instead of monthly support payments.  In the end, your decisions now will affect the rest of your life, so let Alternative Divorce Solutions help you feel confident throughout this challenging process.

 

 

A TIMELINE OF YOUR CASE:

– Initial Consultation

You will start by sitting down with one of our trained experts to talk through your unique situation. Together we’ll asses a path that might be right for you and spend time working through your financial and family goals.

– Document Gathering and Organization

Once we have aligned on a path, we’ll begin collecting documents from all parties to better understand where we are today to help forecast the impact of different settlement options. We will verify assets and liabilities and make sure everyone is fully transparent when they come to the table.

– Individual Meetings

Next, we’ll meet individually with various parties.  These individual meetings help make sure all voices are heard and are a vital part of what makes our process unique. We understand these are emotional times and everyone may have different wants and needs.  Investing the time to listen and understand, pays dividends down the road.

– Data Entry and Analysis

With all the data gathered and a clear understanding of your goals, our team goes to work crunching the numbers and presenting the scenario(s) that help you get where you want to be. By working with clear data, all parties are enabled to make informed decisions with confidence.

– Negotiation Meeting

Now it’s time to negotiate. At some point in the process, there will be aspects of your case that both parties do not agree on.  We understand these are sensitive times and our team uses their training in Family Law Mediation & Collaborative Divorce to good use to drive toward a shared outcome.

– Preparing the Final Agreement

Finally, an agreement is prepared for all parties. Unlike the traditional divorce process, this agreement is driven by data, collaborative goals, and a clear vision for your financial future. This is the Alternative Divorce Solutions difference.
