    • I’m getting divorced. What tax filing status must I use?

      Top Scoop

      If you are still legally married (as of the last day of the filing year) you have the choice to either file “Married filing jointly” or “Married filing separately”. There are some factors that may help you decide which option is right for you. If you and your ex are still able to work well together filing jointly could work for you, otherwise consider filing “married filing separately”. Filing separately is also critical if you suspect that your Ex is hiding assets or income since you could be held liable for any fraudulent information. As with all tax advice, seek a professional opinion for your specific situation.

    • I've heard about divorce coaches, but I don't know anything about them. Why should I hire one?

      Top Scoop

      The goal in hiring a divorce coach is to save you money and to help you plan and be strategic throughout your divorce. Although you pay a fee to hire one, your divorce coach is meant to provide you with insight about how to navigate the process so that you do not have to pay your lawyer each time you have a question.

    • I am worried about expenses during my divorce. Does having a divorce coach mean that I will have to pay more?

      Top Scoop

      It shouldn't. Your divorce coach's hourly fees should be lower than your lawyer's so when you ask a question to your coach rather than to your attorney, you should wind up paying less. But look over the coach you are considering and try to get references so that you can find out just how helpful he or she can be.
