Over half a million divorces occur in America every year, indicating that financial planners are likely to encounter client couples facing divorce within their practice. Due to the adversarial nature of the legal process, the emotional and financial strain on divorcing couples is often exacerbated, leading clients to experience significant stress and leaving advisors looking for ways to offer help. While financial planners are uniquely positioned to provide impactful support due to the collaborative and problem-solving nature of their work, they must navigate complex ethical considerations when working with clients undergoing divorce. This includes maintaining professional integrity while managing evolving client relationships and knowing when to call in specialized divorce planning experts. 

Join us at the Kitces Monthly Webinar in July where expert Michael Kothakota will discuss how financial planners can position themselves to support clients facing divorce. He will cover strategies to navigate the ethical and emotional aspects of divorce planning, ensuring that planners are well-equipped to provide the best possible guidance during such a challenging time. 

At this webinar, advisors will learn:
- The main considerations around custody, support, and asset division that advisors need to understand
- What to consider when determining if it’s ethical to work with a client couple facing divorce 
- Which steps to take when a client couple states they are getting divorced
- What additional resources are available that can support you and your clients during divorce
