Ken Maynard - Divorce Mediator

Getting a divorce is a confusing process that can be made even more confusing when the legal jargon is added to the mix. To help you, we've put together a glossary of divorce terminology and jargon of some frequently used words in separation and divorce. As an added bonus we have also included definitions for many common Real Estate, Pension and Investment Terms.

A person who is recently separated or thinking of ending their marriage needs to consider the financial consequences of their actions very carefully. The first step in making a budget for life as a separated or divorced person is to add up all the income that comes in on a monthly basis. Include all sources of income, whether from paid work, investments or other sources. It's best to err on the side of caution and avoid including sources of income like spoual support or overtime if they are not guaranteed to come in. A Divorce Financial Specialist can help you with this task.
