    How To Get Your Financial House in Order Before, During and After Divorce.

    There’s always a lot of issues to face when it comes to divorce, and finance is usually one of the more complex ones. Many people about to start the divorce process often ask what they can do to prepare for how assets and property will be split. That’s why we've brought on special guest Nancy B. Kaye, MBA who is a Certified Financial Planner and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. In this episode, Nancy gives great insight on what to expect, what to look for and most of all what to avoid when it comes to finances and divorce. 

    About Kim

    For more than 25 years, Kim Ciesinski has focused her legal career exclusively in the area of Divorce and Family Law. She represents clients in all aspects of divorce and family law matters, including custody, parenting time schedules, spousal maintenance, child support, distribution of assets, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, as well as post-judgment proceedings.

    Sadly, the word “divorce” has become synonymous with “destruction.” But Kim believes it doesn’t have to be that way. Ms. Ciesinski believes that divorce can and should be a process of restructuring the financial and parental aspects of a family unit through a healthy, positive process.

    She strives to move clients through this often devastating experience by thinking out of the box and creating realistic long term goals to make the transition from marriage to divorce less traumatic. To that end, Kim focuses her practice on collaborative divorce, mediation, and negotiated settlement as highly effective alternatives to adversarial litigation.
