And, speaking of changes, you’ll have to make many of them as you move through the years — and that includes changes to your investment portfolio. But how will you know when it’s time to take action? 

 

 

There is no getting around it – divorce is painful and it can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be a messy and financially devastating life event.  One of the available alternative dispute resolution processes is called Family Mediation.  This process is voluntary, consensual and involves a specially trained neutral professional.  The Mediator helps the parties reach a mutually acceptable agreement.
