NYS STATEMENT OF NET WORTH.
Get it off of your plate and onto ours.
YOUR ATTORNEY NEEDS IT, BUT YOU'RE A DEER IN HEADLIGHTS
We know. The 22-page document is excruciatingly detailed and the last thing you want to do right now is comb through the finances of your marriage - but it must be done, and it must be done right. This single task facilitates the equitable division of marital property and is the foundation for spousal + child support. Your negotiations, your divorce settlement and your future financial wellbeing depend on it.
THE VALUE OF US DOING IT FOR YOU
Besides saving you the time, bandwidth and emotional energy of having to download statements, and sort + calculate data for your net worth statement, our work will make you the most transparent + thorough person in the courtroom. We provide bulletproof figures backed by organized documentation so that there's little-to-no room for dispute in front of the judge. This level of honest + accurate financial detail enhances your credibility in any game of "he said-she said-they said," particularly when compared to a dishonest spouse who might be trying to falsify information, deceive or manipulate.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
The first step is a free 30-minute consultation to gauge whether we are a good fit to work together and to discuss your macro timeline + needs.
The next step is to meet in person to get started. Katheryn will bring:
- Our Working Relationship Agreement + Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA)
- Her empathetic, non-judgmental, non-biased vibes + laptop
- Net Worth Statement (NWS) Checklist
- The ability to keep us focused
- Emotional support
You will need to know the specifics from your Attorney on how many years of the marriage we are looking back on and what the current comparative period is that should be assessed. In this meeting, we will discuss the full scope of the work and you decide how you would like to proceed.
Most clients want to do as little work on this as possible and leave everything to Katheryn, with average projects taking 20 hours to complete at a total cost of $2,500. Your NWS project will depend on the amount of work you do or don't want to do, as well as how many accounts + years need to be assessed. In every case, our goal is to make this process as painless as possible and help you create an NWS that wows the courtroom.
This work will make certain that you don't overstate information to the court and face backlash. It will also make certain that you don't understate information to the court, which can lead to less spousal + child support than you actually need.
And one of the biggest benefits we've seen come from this process is empowerment. Having the full macro picture of your marriage financials, calculating + knowing what you'll need for the next chapter in your life, and being able to step into it with a sense of what's possible, is priceless. No matter what, you'll be OK and we will help you feel that.
