Financial Aspects of Divorce

Edina Property Divisions LawyerFinancial Consequences of Divorce

One of the most important aspects of any divorce is coming up with a plan for your financial future. In order to do this, it is important to look at all the financial aspects of your divorce, from the division of assets to possible tax consequences. I am David L. Olson, Attorney at Law, and from my Edina office, I help Minnesota families come up with property division plans that work.

I believe that creative problem solving is an important part of the solution when it comes to property division after a divorce. Court settlements often split assets in half and make an equitable distribution between spouses, but this isn't always the best solution for a family. During a divorce, it is important to get to a place where you can focus on tomorrow rather than yesterday. I will help you look at a point in time after the divorce and think about where you want to see yourself, so we can help you reach your long-term goals. I will take a look at your marital property, marital assets, and current financial situation in order to help you understand your options. I will help you determine what certain property might be worth, and I will work with you to decide which items are most important to your future By preparing a balance sheet of all your assets, I will pinpoint which assets are protected and which ones are available for equitable distribution. When possible, I will also work collaboratively with you and the other parties to make sure that assets are divided for the best interests of your family.

Over the 35 years I've been helping clients through the divorce process, I've developed a talent for managing the numbers involved: assets that will develop as the divorce proceedings continue, potential sales of a homes or other property, cash components of settlements, and the taxable consequences following divorce are all important concerns that I won't lose sight of. I will also thoroughly explore your stake in pensions, 401ks, and other benefits that may be part of a retirement plan. I know where to look for assets and how to work for you to ensure a fair and equitable distribution in your divorce.
