Divorce is incredibly difficult. After the emotional and financial struggle that accompanies a breakup, women are left drained and their confidence shattered into a million pieces.
Jeffrey A. Landers, founder of Bedrock Divorce Advisors, LLC, wants to change all that. In his new book, Divorce: Think Financially, Not Emotionally, he offers women the tools we need to emerge from divorce with our finances intact and our financial future secure. The tools he offers can be particularly empowering for women in abusive marriages.
“We all know that even under the best of circumstances, divorce is complicated and emotionally trying. For women in abusive marriages, however, the process is exponentially harder–and proceeding safely is absolutely essential,” Landers says. “These women, and all divorcing women, need to empower themselves with knowledge. They need to learn how to protect their assets as they put the pieces in place for a secure financial future.”
In Divorce: Think Financially, Not Emotionally, Landers helps women navigate the difficult divorce terrain by offering practical, step-by-step advice on a wide range of topics, including how to:
- Build a top-notch divorce team
- Organize financial documents
- Protect businesses, intellectual property, and personal assets
- Determine if a husband is hiding assets
- Manage pension plans, 401Ks, and other retirement accounts
- Negotiate alimony
- Disinherit a husband
Landers is donating 50% of all profits from his book to the Bedrock Divorce Fund for Abused Women, Inc., a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity he recently launched to help female victims of domestic abuse and the organizations that support them.
“Over the years, I’ve worked with many women who, at the time, were in physically and/or mentally abusive relationships,” Landers says. “I’ve seen how these relationships can leave women feeling trapped emotionally and financially, and I’ve seen how all that can change once they take steps to secure their financial future.”
Every women needs a support team during a divorce. Jeff is offering us the help we need to break away and start over successfully.
