Mediation Money Mentor helps you understand your financial situation, determine what you need for your future, and effectively advocate for yourself during divorce mediation.
Laurie Itkin is a certified divorce financial analyst (CDFA) and is not authorized to provide legal advice.
Understand Your Marital Finances
You'll receive guidance on how to quickly and accurately complete your required financial disclosures regarding assets, debts, income, and expenses.
Together we'll review your spouse's disclosures and joint tax returns.
We'll discuss possible ranges for child or spousal support (if applicable) and the potential impact on your future lifestyle.
Prioritize and Strategize
I'll listen to your financial priorities and, after analyzing your financial situation, help you determine if they are reasonable and achievable.
I'll show you various ways assets can be split fairly (after taxes are considered) and help you negotiate from a position of knowledge.
After each mediation session we'll discuss what proposals are still on the table and what has changed.
Effectively Advocate for Yourself
When you understand how decisions you make (or fail to make) impact your financial future, you will be equipped to:
distinguish fact from fiction
articulate your needs
stand up for your rights
compromise with confidence
