In this special two-part episode Susan Guthrie speaks with the Founders of My Divorce Solution, Karen Chellew and Catherine Shanahan, who identify the top 5 financial roadblocks in divorce and give you the actionable steps and information that you need to plow right through them to financial success in your case!

In  Part One you will learn:

  • Why ACCESS is the initial difficulty that you may face and why it is so critical.
  • Where you can get financial documents if you can't get them from your spouse.
  • How to break down the COMPONENTS of your finances so that everything is clear.
  • The different INTERPRETATIONS that can impact financial information and who can help you.
  • How these roadblocks might impact a 401(K) as an example to make things clear.

AND much more CRITICAL information that you need to know!

When divorce is on the horizon, the fear around finances often stems from the unknown.  This episode is antidote to that fear so be sure to listen to Part One today and tune in on Thursday for Part Two!
