“What You Need to Know About the Financial Aspects of Divorce”

second-saturday-image2The Women’s Institute for Financial Education (WIFE.org) is the oldest non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial education to women in their quest for financial independence and higher quality of life. Founded by Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall, renowned experts in women’s finances, their mission was to connect women with resources to help them prosper and grow financially.  WIFE.org has gained national prominence, and WIFE.org recently was named one of the top 500 financial sites by Online Investor. WIFE.org has captured the interest of women seeking financial advice as well as the press seeking financial information for women.

One of the important services WIFE.org offers is the Second Saturday workshop, which is designed to help women survive the divorce process without falling into the common major financial, legal and emotional pitfalls. The workshop has been such a highly regarded resource for women, WIFE.org expanded the program across the nation in 2014. Additionally Second Saturday now welcomes men so this valuable information is available to everyone.

At Second Saturday we have united a team of qualified local professionals to provide men and women with the knowledge and resources they need to survive the divorce process and move on toward better things ahead.

You Are Not Alone

Divorce is one of the hardest things you might ever face – but you are not alone. We’re here to provide essential information and education from start to finish and yes, when it’s time to move forward into your new life with confidence.

Second Saturday provides you the support you need to get through the difficulties of divorce and the comfort in knowing that you are not alone in this process.

From understanding the law to caring for your children, the more equipped you are with the facts, the less traumatic, costly and time-consuming the entire process will be.

There is no assurance that the techniques and strategies discussed are suitable for all individuals or will yield positive outcomes. The information to be presented is not intended to be a substitute for specific individualized tax or legal advice.

Learn how to navigate the financial aspect of the divorce process and take control of your life


Mark C. Hegstrom, AIF CDFA

Certified Divorce Financial Analyst

Attendees will learn how to avoid financial errors in the divorce settlement.  I find that for most of my clients, the number one issue is maintaining positive cash flow – in other words, paying the bills on a monthly basis – not only on the day after divorce, but 5, 10, 15 years into the future. In order to meet cash flow needs, there are three sources of money that may be available to you as a result of your divorce: child support, spousal support, and marital property.

We will review property division and retirement accounts, how equal amounts may not be equal at all when you consider

tax effects.  Some divorces do settle 50/50. However, it can make a huge difference which 50 percent you get. In other words, all assets are not created equal. We will use a case study of Ken and Kate to illustrate these points and talk about short term and long term effects of three different settlement offers.

Classes are held the Second Saturday of each month from 9:00 to 11:30am at Inver Hills Community College – Fine Arts Building, Room 190, 2500 80th St E, Inver Grove Heights, MN 55076

Cost is $25 Cash or Check, paid at the door
