If you are contemplating going for divorce or currently going through the process, who are the right players that you need to assemble and have on your side? In this episode, Top Lawyer in Family Law, Matrimonial, Arbitration, and Mediation, Eric Broder joins us to share valuable inputs on where to start and identify who and when to get certain professionals involved in the process — whether that be before, during, and after your divorce.

Key Points in this Episode:

✔️ Eric posits that early on, it is necessary to get a therapist or a divorced coach, “we are not as qualified as a therapist who can get to know you in an entirely different manner and be with you when the case is over.” Lawyers most often can focus on the legal side and are not fully qualified to assist you in dealing with the emotional and psychological aspects. ✔️ Be careful who you listen to. Friends and people close to you should be supportive and encouraging during the process. However, should your friends tell you about their case, or the people they know may confuse you. Remember, every case is different, and you must focus more on yours and talk to the professionals. ✔️ Remember that while a divorce is personal, it is also a business transaction. Eric shares that clients who had their cases move the fastest are the ones that decide rationally and treat it like a business transaction. “In 80 -90% of our cases, people figure out what to do with their kids and don’t have many issues.” ✔️You may need a real estate appraiser to come in. Many states don’t recognize what a real estate broker values a house; if you cannot agree on the value of a house with your spouse, you may need a certified real estate appraiser. ✔️ Seek the guidance of parenting coordinators. They can be your fallback and prevent everyone from going to court and resolving new issues. It’s much more expensive to go to court and pay your lawyers than it is to see an excellent therapist or social worker.  ✔️ Other experts you may have to bring in are a business evaluator, a forensic accountant, a financial planner, and trust and estate lawyer in the three stages of the divorce process. They will help you make sound decisions and save you from spending higher costs in the future.
