Course Description

Certified Divorce Financial Analyst Karen Sparks discusses the myriad of financial issues which are involved in defining the Marital Standard of Living (MSOL) in both Community Property and Equitable Distribution states. She defines Marital Asset Distribution in the general sense including the two main general approaches, with examples of statutory guidelines. Her overview of Marital Standard of Living, (or the lifestyle enjoyed by the parties during the marriage), defines in detail the terms and the factors which go into the calculations and the process of navigating complex financial issues, such as investment assets, real estate and deferred compensation and how these factors are also involved in the calculation of spousal support.
