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.
