These professionals may be beneficial to you as you navigate your divorce. They include the following:

  • Real estate agents - These professionals can provide critical support during a divorce by assessing and guiding one through selling jointly owned property, such as the marital home. While the marital home is not always sold during a divorce, there are many cases where selling the house will become necessary.

Moreover, an experienced real estate agent will be familiar with the legal minutiae that inevitably arise during the sales process of a home. Realtors can also help work with divorce attorneys as spouses navigate the property division process.

  • Accountant - When facing a divorce, especially high asset divorce, there are various important financial matters to consider, such as tax situations, asset evaluation, and property division. An accountant can provide valuable guidance in these areas, especially if taxes are owed or should be paid in advance to prevent severe financial consequences. Accountants also may have insights to divide the assets in the most tax-savvy and transparent manner possible.

Furthermore, your accountant's support will extend into sorting through complex spreadsheets, interpreting tax codes, forecasting income tax ramifications, and more.
