A Florida divorce is sure to impact your finances, and you may find that it affects everything from how much you have tucked away for retirement to how you file your taxes in the coming years. Many people navigating divorces find it useful to work with certain financial professionals who may help them anticipate the financial ramifications of divorce and put appropriate plans in place to account for them.
According to Kiplinger, there are many types of financial professionals who may be able to help you navigate your divorce and create a plan for your future. Here are just a few.
Certified Public Accountants
Working with a CPA may be advantageous for anyone working through a divorce. However, you may find it especially so when tax season rolls around, particularly if you were not the one to handle your taxes in the past. Sometimes, CPAs also double as forensic accountants, meaning they may have other skills, such as uncovering hidden assets, too.
Certified Financial Planners
A CFP’s job is to help you create a plan for your financial future. He or she may do this by helping you plan for retirement or make smart, low-risk investments, among similar efforts.
Things become a bit more challenging if you, your former partner or both of you own a business. The business valuator’s role is to help figure out how much the business is worth so that you may put plans in place to divide it appropriately.
Working with various financial planners helps you create a plan for your financial future while minimizing the financial impact your split has on your life.
