Benefits of Working with Confluence

We strive to deliver creative solutions and strategies to optimize your financial situation through the application of education and support.  These strategies and support are particularly important when one spouse has less financial understanding and confidence than the other.  Divorce financial planning helps divorcing clients arrive at a settlement that is fully understood by all.  We provide clients and their lawyers with a clear view of how the decisions they make today impact a client's financial future.


Topics explored include:

  • Budgeting;

  • Spousal and child support;

  • Identification and separation of marital and non-marital assets;

  • Valuing and dividing property, including retirement assets and pensions;

  • Splitting the house;

  • Risk assessment (insurance);

  • Valuation of closely-held businesses;

  • Asset tracing and identification of missing assets;

  • Expert witness testimony; and

  • Tax laws and financial issues affecting divorce.

Always keeping an eye toward the future, we are able to seamlessly transition you to post-divorce financial services, including asset movement, title transfers, traditional financial planning, and investment management.  Experienced in both divorce and family offices, we are able to skillfully navigate this complex process and put you on the road to financial independence.

Our purpose is to provide education and support to bring clarity to your divorce so that you can move forward confidently.
