Divorce demands financial decision-making that requires expertise

Divorce demands financial decision-making that will alter the rest of yours and possibly your children's life. Most people have no knowledge of the specifics of the finances of divorce. Many are too emotional to make sound financial decisions regarding their future. Quite often poor choices are made, choices that are permanent. These decisions require the experience of a divorce professional who specializes in the analysis of divorce finances.

Alberta Divorce Finances is Alberta's only divorce financial practice. Sharon Numerow is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA™), and the founder of Alberta Divorce Finances Ltd. 

For more than a decade, she has consulted with individuals, couples and family lawyers to help people understand the financial and tax implications of how an impending divorce will change their financial future.

Sharon has a deep and personal understanding of the short and long term financial implications of divorce and is highly committed to helping her clients clarify their financial future.

She reviewed and brought to the attention of both myself and my lawyer all of the potential tax implications and available deductions and credits with respect to some of my financial divorce issues. We now have the necessary support and knowledge to take the next step in our proceedings.
