During any divorce, emotions can run high and impair decision-making when it comes to financial issues.
BRENTWOOD, TN (PRWEB) September 28, 2011
Divorce Financial Expert Rosemary Frank joined a record number of attendees at the 9th Annual Conference of the Association of Divorce Financial Planners, September 22-24, at the Doral Arrowwood Resort in Westchester County, New York.
“This has been a key professional event for me and an opportunity to share ideas with outstanding leaders in the specialty of divorce finance.” says Ms. Frank. “I was especially interested in the latest, and ever-changing, tax guidelines and best practices when it comes to assisting a client who owns a business with the divorcing spouse.”
Divorce financial practitioners, judges, attorneys, mediators, paralegals, child specialists, CPAs, and other finance professionals gathered from across the country to gain perspectives from different disciplines. Like many attendees, Rosemary often is required to address the complex issues that present themselves in business ownership and divorce.
“During any divorce, emotions can run high and impair decision-making when it comes to financial issues,” says Frank. “This is especially the case when one or both spouses own a business and must decide how to divide or allocate a marital asset which is also their source of income.”
Additional topics discussed at the annual conference included: the evolving role of the financial expert in divorce litigation, mediation, and collaborative law; recent research findings regarding the forces behind money “behaviors” during the marriage and divorce; retirement plans and estate planning; complex ethics issues in this niche specialty.
