    Imagine trying to sell your home if you have no idea what the current market value is. One of the first things you do when you decide to sell is contact your real estate professional who will then do their work to discover what your home is worth, so you know what you are negotiating for. Selling your home without an asking price is like giving all the power to the purchaser who can offer you any price. Without a benchmark to work from it’s just you versus the buyer. In divorce, the approach to negotiations is often an “us versus them”…

    Author: Empowered Divorce Solutions |

    Can you relate to this divorce debt story? John’s motto was always “work hard and play hard”. John had worked hard his entire career which often was his justification for the money he spent drinking, dining out, clothes and on his home. He was living the high life and he felt it was all justified. If he had taken the time to figure out how much he was spending in relation to his income, he would’ve realized he was spending more than he was making.
