From Our Founder

Take Control of Your Future

Divorce is hard no matter what your circumstances. I’ve been there. Whether you have young or adult children or none at all, married 3 or 30 years, it’s a trying time. During periods of high stress it’s natural to feel overwhelmed, but with a little guidance we can make concious and choices that we won’t regret ten years from now. With TruNorth Divorce Solutions, you’ll get the expertise you need to begin building your best future life. Read Berni’s bio here.

In How Many Ways Can We Help Optimize YOUR Financial Future?

Child Support and Alimony

Child support is based on your state’s formulas, but only to a certain point. Are you sure your calculations are correct?

Alimony, too, is largely discretionary and causes significant angst to both the payor and payee. There are ways you can avoid ongoing alimony payments while still addressing the financial needs of the lesser-earning spouse.

Marital Home

One of you wants to keep the marital home but can’t afford it or refinance.

Retirement Savings

What’s the most efficient way to divide retirement savings? Will you need a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO)? 

Taxes

Two seemingly equivalent assets may not be alike. Ensure your settlement considers tax implications.

Risk Management

How can you best plan for the possiblity of future disability, death, or bankruptcy and the impact it may have on you or your children?

College Funding

College costs can be affected by your divorce settlement. Minimize them now while you have the chance. Even if your state doesn’t obligate parents to fund college expenses, you can build it into a mediated settlement agreement.

Pension Valuation

Most divorce attorneys have no idea on how to correctly value pensions and instead rely on valuations by outside experts whose costs will be passed onto you. We regularly value pensions and include the valuation in our fixed fee. 

Financial Projections

Evaluate how various settlement options will affect your financial health one, five, ten, twenty years from now.

Owned Businesses and Rental Properties

Value your businesses accurately without spending a fortune. 

Stock Options and Restricted Stock Units

Properly value and divide your stock options and RSU’s to ensure fairness in the division of assets. How can these be divided to minimize taxes and risk?

 

Hidden Assets

Are there assets you’re not aware of? Make sure these are taken into account.

Cash Flow and Budgeting

Understand how your settlement will affect your standard of living and ability to pay your bills.
