financial advisorsIn his most recent Financial Advisor Magazine column, Cordell & Cordell Principal Partner Joe Cordell explained the value financial experts can bring to the divorce process by providing several specific examples of how advisors can impact divorce proceedings on a day-to-day basis.

“From helping to determine the value of a business to forecasting future income potential, financial experts are a crucial professional to include on your divorce team,” Mr. Cordell wrote.

Mr. Cordell provided three specific examples of how a financial advisor can assist with the divorce process: when evaluating the value for the marital portion of a business, when analyzing future income, and when avoiding sentimental attachments that can be financial burdens.
