Financial professionals work for both divorcing parties to clarify the current financial status and help the parties to choose the best financial outcome based on the financial interests of each party.

Family specialists are licensed and/or registered psychologists and social workers whose primary area of practice is in conflict resolution, family relationships, child-development issues as well as having expertise related to the concerns of children of divorce. Through their therapeutic background, Family Professionals recognize the strong emotions experienced by divorcing couples that can often get in the way of effective collaboration on the legal and parenting issues. The specialist works to help manage conflict between spouses and optimize communication so that couples can successfully move through the divorce process and develop an effective co-parenting relationship for the future.
