Certified Divorce Financial Analysts in Tacoma, Washington

Post Divoice PlanningFew things in life can be as challenging as going through the process of divorce. Everything changes at the same time. In addition to the personal changes, you have financial changes to deal with. Questions surrounding the asset division come to the forefront — How much money do you need? What taxes do I need to pay? How do I organize the assets that I am receiving from the divorce?

When you put it all together, it adds up to the question of "Will I be OK?" David A. Stolz is a CPA/PFS, CFP®, and a CFDA® who, along with the team at Stolz & Associates, P.S., can help you plan your finances after marriage.

David A. Stolz is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® in Tacoma, WA, who is frequently referred by attorneys, as we have extensive experience helping people build their new life after divorce. Our process begins by reviewing the list of assets that you may receive from your divorce. These are the financial “building blocks” for your future. We review these assets for tax opportunities and then help you build a cash flow model for your future. The model includes determining how much income you will have, what your spending needs are, how and when to pay your taxes, etc. Moving forward, our divorce financial advisors work together to manage your investments and continually refine your financial plan until it feels like it's a perfect fit for you.

Asset Division

Rarely do divorces end in a truly equal split of assets. Even if the assets are split “evenly”, certain assets may have different tax implications, leading to an uneven split on an after-tax basis.  Asset division makes up some of the most common reasons divorce ends in such a highly contested manner. An experienced divorce financial advisor can help you ensure that your assets are protected, and you aren't taken advantage of during the process.

QDRO's and Retirement Accounts

When planning your financial future after a divorce, an important consideration is how the retirement assets of you and your ex will be split.  Part of that process includes utilizing a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) to ensure the money is split appropriately.  We can help facilitate this transfer.

A QDRO is a legal document from your divorce that outlines who receives your retirement plan assets based on what was agreed to in your divorce settlement. Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® David A. Stolz in Tacoma, WA, can help clients execute this arrangement.
