My divorce was pretty straightforward and Katie did not make it any more complex than it needed to be. She listened to what I had agreed on with my wife and helped me understand some issues with my mortgage. She drafted our documents, sent clear instructions for signing everything and filed with the court. I was divorced in less than 45 days from our first meeting.
Kelli is a great listener. She never made me feel rushed and took the time to meet with me and help me understand the process. Her advice was spot on and I don’t know how I would have made it through without her. If you want to have a good relationship with your ex and do everything you can to help your kids through divorce – this is the way to do it.
Divorce is hard and doing something different than your friends and family can be scary. But I am so glad that I did. Kelli and Wendy helped me every step of the way and I feel confident that I am in a good financial place now and in the future.
Kelli was so easy to work with. Out of nowhere my wife told me that she wanted a divorce and I needed advice. She rearranged her schedule and I had an appointment the next day. Kelli walked me through the process and it made me feel better just being able to talk with someone. I appreciated the fact that she also gave me the names of other attorneys that she thought I would work well with in case I went with a ligated divorce. Thanks to her I didn’t need those names. My wife and I settled quickly and at a fraction of the cost other attorneys quoted me.
Hiring Wendy Hayes as my CDFA was a great decision while going through my divorce! She is very knowledgeable, and was willing to take the time to be sure that I understood all that was needing to be done, to protect my best interest. Wendy, was also able to refer me to a great QDRO attorney, as well as the right person for health and life insurance. She took the time to see and hear my needs, before I knew them myself. I know I would not have come out of this divorce, as well as I did financially, if I had not found her.
Katie, you were instrumental in moving me forward in life and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made a difference in my life.
Wendy, every one of my patients/clients whom I have referred to you has had nothing but good things to say about you. I trust you with the people I care about, and I’m grateful to have you as a valued resource (and friend)!
It was so nice knowing how much it was going to cost when I started the process. With all of the unknowns out there I at least had piece of mind that I wouldn’t get in over my head financially. I can’t say their process makes divorce easy. Nothing can do that. But I really think it made my divorce the easiest it could have been. Thank you!!!
I chose Katie as our mediator because she had a background in tax/corporate law and employee benefits. My divorce involved stock options and dividing retirement plans and I needed a mediator who understood these things and could help us divide them up the right way. She worked with us over several weeks and we were able to resolve everything. We both consulted lawyers along the way as Katie suggested.
I am so grateful to Wendy for helping me sort through the financial matters of my divorce. I don’t think I ever could have initiated the divorce without Wendy’s guidance last summer that encouraged me to begin the slow and painful process of organizing my financial paperwork. Wendy and my attorney worked really well together, and that teamwork gave me some added confidence that I probably would not have had otherwise. I can’t imagine mediation without having Wendy there with her two laptops and copious spreadsheets and documents!
