“This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do in my life”.

If you’re contemplating divorce, or already in the process, you know how challenging everything can be – navigating the emotions, the decisions, the tasks and the legalities – on top of having to manage your day-to-day responsibilities. Most of all, your financial future can become a big source of stress.

At BDF, we understand exactly what you’re going through. That’s why we created a unique and specialized team focused just on divorcing individuals – so you can be sure of getting the best combination of hard-headed logic with empathetic understanding to help you move forward to the next chapter of your life.

With BDF, You’re Among Friends

It takes one to know one.

Unless you’ve been through a divorce, it’s hard to understand the lows, the demands, and the intense energy it can take out of you.

Heather Locus, founder and leader of BDF’s Divorce Practice Group, found out the truth of this when she personally went through a divorce herself. This first-hand experience compelled her to start a dedicated group focused just on divorcing individuals- so people like you can get the individualized and nuanced specialization and support you need to go through the process with the least hassle and stress.

Our knowledgeable and caring team have resources to help you far beyond the financial side of divorce, including:

Divorce can be a scary road to travel. With specialized help, you can navigate that road with strength, understanding and clarity. And we’re here to support you do exactly that!
