Taking the Right Steps

In this month’s issue I’m sharing information on what to do when ‘it’s over’.  Whether you have said it, or heard it, or have discussed it and agreed upon it, you know the relationship is done.

It’s said that, “divorce is the one human tragedy that reduces everything to cash.”  When it comes to the break up of the relationship financial decisions are an integral part of almost every conversation and all other aspects of the separation process.

For those of you dealing with this life event transition I welcome your inquiry calls about how Financial Divorce Solutions can help you make the best financial decisions during this emotional and stressful time.  Call me 905-892-4058.  Your decision to call will only cost you a bit of time and you will benefit from a conversation on what to do next.

Or email me,  I would like to hear from you.
