Divorce Financial Planning

We begin by helping you articulate your financial needs, concerns, and objectives. Then, we help you identify accurate values for your assets, debts, income and expenses.

The financial mediators at Peace Talks prepare schedules that project cash flows, net worth, and tax effects of proposed settlements. Putting that information in language you can understand helps you take the next steps.
We consult with you, your attorneys, and other advisors to evaluate financial reports and proposed divorce settlements, answer questions, and provide the information and advice you need to go forward.

Thorough financial planning sets a positive tone for productive discussions. Clients find that the process becomes more efficient and cost effective. Their stress, frustration, and anxiety diminish. They feel confident and prepared to make prudent financial decisions.

Informed. Prepared. Confident. Secure.

Collaborative divorce

Collaborative divorce is a non-adversarial process that is attracting interest in California and throughout the nation. Couples and their attorneys agree to resolve all legal and financial issues related to the pending divorce without going to court. As a result, it is an extremely supportive, considerate, sensible and constructive approach to divorce.

The process usually happens through phone and face-to-face meetings in a respectful, supportive environment. A team of advisors that can include attorneys, financial specialists, and mental health professionals work with the couple to achieve fair and workable settlements that keep the best interests of the entire family in mind.

Stephanie Maloney and her team of financial mediators are trained to work with you in the Collaborative process. They have the experience and expertise to provide complete and accurate financial information. They work effectively with you, your attorneys, and other professionals to accomplish your goals in a collaborative environment.
