I was referred to Tesia by my Accountant here in Stonewall. My accountant had recommended speaking to a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst as they are specifically trained in dealing with the financial aspects with individuals/couples going through divorce. I initially contacted EDS for assistance with splitting our assets fairly 50/50. After working with EDS I was able to get a clear picture of what I was entitled to and have learned that keeping my marital home would not provide groceries for my family. After going through the process I was able to negotiate options where Tesia was able to project each scenario to ensure that my kids and I were taken care of before, during and after my divorce.

It was great to have everything broken down into easy and understandable steps. This process has helped reduced the stress of my situation. It took 3 weeks from start to finish, which helped realize what was important to me and avoid negotiating based on emotions. This really helped me know where I stand and prepare for my new life.

I highly recommend anyone with any uncertainties in their separation/divorce situation who wants to find out if your divorce is financially fair, afford to keep the marital home or share the pension. Going through this process with Empowered Divorce Solutions has made everything clear and know what I would of walked away from.
Thank you so much Empowered Divorce Solutions.

Family law clients need all the help they can get. A good lawyer working with a CDFA can make even the most difficult cases move forward in a cost-efficient and effective way. Good team-work between a lawyer and CDFA always pays dividends for clients.
