Tools for a Clean Divorce

Tools for a Clean Divorce

After over a decade as a divorce consultant in the San Francisco Bay area, Storey Jones has leveraged that experience to build the first holistic end-to-end platform for divorce to bring innovation and technology to an outdated system. She is determined to change the experience by providing education and brilliant efficiency with expansive daily tools designed so clients and professionals can seamlessly work on and understand the same financial and other case-related data. Storey will discuss and how it is designed from the ground up to fundamentally redefine this life transition for both spouses and professionals.

Storey believes that a lot of the fighting in divorce is partly due to the lack of a framework for how to think about it, along with a lack of access to information, guidance, and tools. That is where's philosophy comes into play!

Old Thought: I am so angry. I am devastated. I am scared. This is going to be a fight. I need a shark. I am so afraid of what I will have to give away or that I won’t get enough. What do I do? How am I going to survive it? (Complete and utter chaos of the mind.)

New Thought: I am so angry. I am devastated. I am scared. I know this emotional pain makes it difficult to be rational, so I will work on it and separate it from the process. I need to learn as much as possible about my options. I want to prepare so that I can make wise, informed decisions about how to move forward. We will always have a past together, and now we have to chart a new future for both of us.

Today's episode discusses all things about dating in the elite sphere. Kristine discusses how it begins with the self-reflection piece and knowing who you are. It is imperative to be able to answer: what does your ideal lifestyle look like in the years to come? And what are your values around money?

-Other forensic services like tracing, income determination, searching for hidden assets

-Business valuations

-Economic and financial damages studies

Some examples of situations Karolina explains:

1) Although the underlying facts and circumstances vary so much from client to client, it is great to have an expert overview of the more common issues that arise in High-Net-Worth divorces. For example, think about if the husband is a business owner and happens to pay himself through the business. How then do you determine actual income for alimony and child support?

2) If the business has an asset worth or merely a vehicle of compensation? (Think about an LLC, which is a flow-through entity for an MD's medical directorship pay. Is that worth anything, or is it just a vehicle by which the doctor gets compensated?)

3) Another significant consideration in divorce is the liquidity aspect, as many business assets are a majority of the total marital estate. Karolina discusses potentially creating equalizations of all other assets and, in turn, raising the question of liquidity while considering potential alimony needs and abilities too.
