Real People! Real Situations! Real Divorce!

“I wish I knew you guys when I was going through my divorce because money scared me!”

Caroline Strawson, Narcissistic Abuse & Trauma Recovery:

“I know for me when I was going through my divorce, I really, really could have used you! My ex-husband is an accountant and so he handled all our finances. Even though I was comfortable with budgets and worked with a 3-million-dollar budget in my corporate world, dealing with a personal budget is very, very different.”

Jasmine Rice, Founder of Good Things Are Gonna Come & Professional Coach

“I wish I would have had that when I was getting divorced (Page of definitions in Divorce Financial Portrait) because my lawyer was saying all of these words and I had no idea what they were... I didn’t even know what the orders were about or what I was asking for. Terrible!”

Jackie Pilossoph, Editor and Chief of Divorced Girl Smiling

“Hiring and bringing an expert in to do these reports (Divorce Financial Portrait) and having this information is critical to many cases as far as getting them moving quickly and efficiently.”

Joseph Willmore, California Certified Family Law Specialist

“Particularly with our grey divorces, or our party’s facing retirement who are divorcing in large numbers, who like our process because it is efficient and out of court and they need to understand their retirement assets. What is their budget moving forward? What does social security look like? What are the different tax consequences of their accounts? I didn’t learn that in law school! So that’s why we have CDFAs just like My Divorce Solution on our team to help us give that professional information for our clients to rely upon.”

Tracy Moore Grant, Founder of the Amicable Divorce Network

“Having everything so concretely and powerfully laid out in divorce can be exciting to know that you have power. To know that you are in control. Many people with ADHD feel out of control. So having that control can be very satisfying.”

David DeWitt, CFP

“I will always say to people that they need to talk to the experts like you guys!”

Kate Anthony, Your Divorce Survival Guide

“You have to check out At least get on a phone call, make a consult, look at their resources. Because this stuff is great.”

Michelle Dempsey-Multack, Author of Moms Moving On

“Imagine the savings if both parties and their divorce team agreed to work with the same financial blueprint that collects financial information, assesses components of the entire marital estate, interprets those components into language that everyone can understand and present a framework that enables parties to compromise with clarity?”

Laurie Itkin, The Options Lady

Client Testimonials

  • Catherine and Karen are amazing. They are thoughtful, intelligent, and extremely efficient. I have been continually impressed by them and their entire staff throughout the process. They have made a very difficult situation much more manageable, and I feel confident in their skills as we navigate a fair solution for both parties. I highly recommend this company, without reservation. Save yourself some major headaches and know that they will take great care of you during this stressful time!

    We began working with Catherine and Karen instead of Attorneys. After getting all the info to them they were able to put together data that was easy to read and understand for everyone involved. Unfortunately my former spouse still wanted to use an attorney. The Attorneys only lie and create drama adding time and money to divorce. In the end our settlement was about the same as they presented day one except the Attorneys got a big pay day. Use My Divorce not an Attorney.

    Soon after I signed on to My Divorce Solution, I realized fully that I signed onto peace of mind. All group members have been found to share in a compassionate and understanding way to my situation and have professionally formulated a financial strategy that I feel shall be of benefit to me upon finalization of my divorce. This for me provides peace of mind during this difficult period of my life.

  • My Divorce Solutions was instrumental in helping me get through the divorce process. Although they did not mediate my divorce, they were there for me every step of the process. I could not have navigated all the highways and biways of divorce without them!

    I had the privilege of working with Karen. She displayed such kindness and compassion towards me and took my hand every step of the way. My divorce was an extremely painful process but I knew Karen was right there with me if I needed anything at all. Thank you so much!!
