In his presentation, Mr. Palatnik focuses on the birth of divorce financial planning, its evolution and the added value it brings to the divorce process. “I’ll be looking at divorce financial planning and its role in the divorce process through the eyes of fictional and historical figures, such as King Lear, Ronald Reagan, Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra,” says Mr. Palatnik. “I’ll also reveal why I think today’s divorce financial planners have it all wrong."
“Mr. Palatnik is well qualified to speak to the evolution of the divorce financial planning profession,” explains Andrew Samalin, president of the ADFP. “He became a divorce financial planner in 1994, when the profession was just beginning and today is recognized as one of the foremost divorce financial planners in the country. The ADFP and its members have benefited greatly from his guidance.”
