What Impact Does Your ”Standard of Living” REALLY Have On Your Divorce with Top Divorce Financial Expert, Olivia Summerhill on Divorce & Beyond #243 The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

    • Self-Improvement

In this episode, Host Susan Guthrie and Top Financial Expert, Olivia Summerhill CFP, CDFA, CMC, share insights into the significance that the marital standard of living (MSOL) may have on your divorce and how it can impact your ability to maintain your lifestyle post-divorce.

"I just want to maintain my standard of living."  Divorce attorneys and financial professionals hear that a lot but what does that really mean?  What constitutes your standard of living and how does the law look at the situation when it comes to helping people continue that lifestyle in their life BEYOND? The MSOL issue most commonly arises when discussing just how much spousal support or alimony will be paid by the higher earning spouse to the other.   Many people assume that they will be entitled to receive an amount that allows them to continue that lifestyle but what about the fact that  there is only so much money to go around?  We discuss this all and more in the episode.

Olivia Summerhill, CFP, CDFA, CMC founded a financial consulting firm dedicated to helping women maintain their lifestyles and thrive post-divorce by educating and empowering them financially.   Although Olivia's niche is celebrity and ultra-high net worth clients, she works with clients in diverse financial situations through her extensive pro bono work.  Olivia knows that when it comes to money and finances, there is nothing more empowering than knowledge and she shares so many golden nuggets with listneners in this episode - it's a MUST listen!
