The financial issues inherent to every divorce case are often times the ones that are the most overlooked. Who should keep the house? How much will it cost to live post divorce?

How can a business be offset? Should a business be valued? Most important of all, will the clients be able to financially survive (and thrive) with the settlement post divorce?
