There is a lot of information published on the legal issues of divorce. Chris and Diane have experienced that the financial issues of divorce are critical to people divorcing, yet there is a paucity of easily accessible information.
Diane and Chris have had the repeated experience of people wishing that they had known that divorce financial experts existed.
Feeling the frustration of the public, Chris and Diane got together to start the Divorce Friday podcast. Join us on Fridays at 11 AM on Facebook Live!
