“I was involved in a highly contested divorce, and my ex-spouse was making it very difficult to identify his true income. My attorney was having a difficult time obtaining all of the necessary financial information needed. He suggested that a financial expert would be necessary to seek, analyze, and essentially, make sense of all the financial information that would be necessary to help us understand what my ex-spouse’s assertions were in relation to his income.
He referred me to Divorce Financial Experts. Cedric informed me that income wasn’t the only issue of concern. We also had to consider expenses, assets and liabilities. He explained all of this in a way that I could understand and made sense to my attorney.
He was able to provide me and my attorney with a list of all the pertinent financial information we needed to obtain to better understand my ex-spouse’s income. After that, he provided us with projections that were easy to understand, which helped us attain a much better settlement for me than we would have achieved without him.
As it turned out, my ex-spouse was stating a very large amount of employer reimbursed expenses that were actually considered income according to IRS tax rules. This is nothing that my attorney or I would have ever considered, let alone found!
I really appreciate that my attorney referred me to Cedric, as he helped clarify my ex-spouse’s net income from all sources, along with saving me a lot of money in fees, since his hourly rate was much less than my attorney’s. Another benefit was that he was able to help me understand my finances, along with helping me create a budget to be able to maintain an affordable lifestyle after my divorce was finalized.
I would recommend Cedric to anyone going through a divorce where finances are an issue. There are things that he found that my attorney and I never would have considered. He also is very well informed about the tax impact of all the financial issues involved with divorce. I wish I would have met him before I had started my divorce proceedings, because I would have been better informed about potential financial outcomes, while discussing strategy with my attorney. With the information Cedric was able to provide, my attorney and I were able to clearly focus on the best strategy going forward in no time!.”
