In the collaborative process, we also deal with neutral financial professionals. These are educated financial professionals. They can be accountants or they can be pension advisors who have been trained in the collaborative process and in New York divorce law. They help us by going over the financials of the parties and helping the parties look at what they need to live on and how the money may be divided. They’re extremely helpful and they shortcut a lot of the problems the attorneys would be dealing with going over all the financials. They also give tax advice. It’s been proven again and again that having the financial professionals who are neutral is an enormous help and actually have cut the cost of the divorce.
