NEXT MEETING January 28, 2020
Welcome Back and Happy New Year!

PROGRAM TOPICBenefits of a Financial Neutral in Mediation. Nancy Hetrick and Leslie Blue cover how the Financial Neutral in the Mediation helps to ensure that the couple is knowledgeable about what their financial choices are and understands the consequences of their choices. They will cover some common financial mistakes that are made because the couple is not aware of the true value of the assets and demonstrate how a 50/50 split that appears to be equal can be not so equal after all.
