Divorce Conversations for Women

Jan 8, 2021

In this episode Rhonda talks to Lisa Zeiderman, a Managing Partner at Miller Zeiderman LLP. They are discussing some of the less obvious financial issues you should consider when looking at your and your spouse’s financial assets in a divorce.

Key takeaways from this conversations are:

  1. Staying on course through the litigation process is important.
  2. Divorce process is a marathon. Aim for the long run, and make sure to get to the end that works for you and your children.
  3. What you say to your therapist is not necessarily private during the child custody dispute.

Marriage is a financial partnership, and it should be viewed as such during a divorce. Your job for the next year is to actually engage into divorce. Get all the information necessary to make the proper decision - it is crucial. Focus on taxes and tax return documents. Sometimes the biggest financial pitfalls are with the tax issues that people usually don’t consider.
