Leslie Garske, CDFA™
Divorce Resource Centre of Colorado
You may be feeling isolated, defeated, and like you will never recover from the emotional and financial battle wounds of divorce. But do not let your heart be dismayed! Being one of the first in my peer group to go through a divorce over 20 years ago and endure two ugly and expensive custody battles since, I know the ups and downs of this roller coaster.
You can count on me to assist you in making informed decisions with regards to tax and financial consequences as you disentangle your life from your soon to be ex. From there, we will look forward to plan for your new financial future. Many of my clients feel relief after working through their post-divorce cashflow knowing that there is life after divorce. While I am not trained as a child specialist, I have been raising kids for over 30 years. If you are going through it, chances are good, I’ve been there! I work with a team of respected, experienced, and compassionate professionals that will aid you through the challenging transition of divorce. You can depend on me to see you through to the other side where you can begin anew….
