Advice Summary Credit...Cancel all joint credit cards and accounts and ensure all accounts with existing bills continue to come to you for payment. Open new credit in your name. Open safety deposit box to secure valuables such as jewelry. Change pin numbers and passwords for all bank accounts and e-mail Budget for the divorce with appropriate amount of solvency Place a fraud alert on your credit profile. Taxes...Review t ax returns for the last three years to ensure they have been filed and that there are no unusual deductions that may not be subst antiated in the case of an audit Spousal & Child Support...Spousal and child support must be paid via a check and should never be cashed but rather deposited in full every time they are received. This is critical and should st art immediately as you may need payment history for future reference. Property...Place your primary residence up for sale and order a Quick Sale Appraisal to determine what the property is valued at to have it sell in 30 to 60 days. Insurance...Husband should be required to maint ain disability coverage in order to secure child support payments. Husband must agree to have his life insured with a Term Life Insurance policy of which you will own and pay for with the children as beneficiaries. Obt ain a Term Life Insurance on your life, with your children as beneficiaries, to protect them against your early death. Obt ain quotes for Long Term Care coverage. At 42 this is an opportune time to lock-in coverage and build it into your monthly household budget. Obt ain a quote for new auto insurance coverage File for COBRA health coverage until you become eligible in your new job. As a cancer survivor ensure that any job you consider will not deny you on a preexisting condition. Health coverage for the children will be critical.

Application-Fannie Mae Form 1003 Fannie Mae, the lending giant, has created the standard loan application that, arguably, is one of the greatest information gathering forms ever developed and thus the reason it’s used during the Planner’s process and incorporated within the Divorce Plan. The first page of this form, labeled Prospect Information, shows the total cost of living for the client. These costs include all installment and revolving debt along with the proposed housing payment. This housing payment maybe rent versus PITI. The first page of the loan application provides general client information such as current address, date of birth, time at residence and contact numbers. The second page of the application reviews the client’s employment (if any) and all sources of income. The third page discloses the client’s known assets, debts from the credit report, monthly household expenses and a list of all real estate owned. The planner’s objective with the use of pages two and three is to properly understand the client’s true current cost of living if nothing were to change and what income would be necessary from work, alimony/temporary maintenance and child support in order for the client’s lifestyle to remain the same. Where lifestyle must change due to a true lack of income and support the planner’s objective is to work with the client to decide what expenses can be eliminated and what debts can be retired to ensure a livable budget. In this case a second application will be completed with the eliminated expenses. All plans are based on current available information and can change.

Uniform Residential Loan Application This application is designed to be completed by the applicant(s) with the Lender's assistance. Applicants should complete this form as "Borrower" or "Co-Borrower", as applicable. Co-Borrower information must also be provided (and the appropriate box checked) when the income or assets of a person other than the "Borrower" (including the Borrower's spouse) will be used as a basis for loan qualification or the income or assets of the Borrower's spouse or other person who has community property rights pursuant to state law will not be used as a basis for loan qualification, but his or her liabilities must be considered because the spouse or other person has community property rights pursuant to applicable law and Borrower resides in a community property state, the security property is located in a community property state, or the Borrower is relying on other property located in a community property state as a basis for repayment of the loan. If this is an application for joint credit, Borrower and Co-Borrower each agree that we intend to apply for joint credit (sign below):

Total Cost Analysis The purpose of the Total Cost Analysis is to express your future cost of home ownership through either the purchase of a new home or the refinancing of the existing marital residence conveyed in PITI (Principal, Interest, Taxes & Insurance).Additionally, this form demonstrates the investment of divorce proceeds articulated using the Time Value of Money Calculation. We attempt in this analysis to demonstrate up to four financing options showing different loan amounts by altering the amount of money put into the purchase/refinance and thus off setting the amount ultimately invested outside of the residence. Please remember that at the time of your review the examples shown are for budgeting purposes only and do not constitute loan approvals or your planner’s final considerations on affordability. This plan is to be utilized as a blueprint for negotiations between you, your attorney and your spouse and or their representative. Upon conclusion of discussions with all parties your planner will analyze the proposed and make final conclusions.

Equity Repositioning Analysis The ERA or otherwise known as the Debt Repositioning Analysis (DRA) is utilized to demonstrate the paying off or redistribution of joint debt to your spouse and its impact on your cost of living. Additionally, this analysis may illustrate a recommended financing structure for the existing marital residence, if to be kept by the client, or a proposed mortgage structure for a new home purchase demonstrating the projected future value of the home and the subsequent tax benefits. Lastly, this analysis provides an asset accumulation study combining the future value of invested divorce proceeds with the future value of real estate. The DRA makes no guarantees of rates of returns on invested assets and or future real estate values, but rather attempts to illustrate how the reduction of debt improves and reduces the clients costs of living and affords the client the opportunity to grow their assets through proper investment strategies and allocations.

“What you need to know about your mortgage, credit & estate when getting divorced” By: Jonathan Klein, CMPS So you have either made the decision to get divorced mutually or you or your spouse has petitioned for it, so what do you do now? First you must protect yourself and this means your credit, assets and home equity. Most people, going through a divorce, immediately concentrate on the assets, but few even consider the impact on their credit and the equity they have trapped in their home. This paper will give you a step by step process to protect both. Your first step is to request that your attorney negotiate with your spouse’s counsel to allow a home equity line of credit to be taken on the marital residence and pay yours and your spouse’s legal fees from this line. I have seen to many divorces that linger on and the parties run out of cash to continue to pay their legal fees. By the time they have come to grips with their predicament their credit cards are maxed and their credit scores are too low to refinance their existing mortgage leaving all their home equity trapped and forcing them to sell the marital residence from a position of weakness. This in not a position you want to be in! Next, cancel all joint credit cards and open new lines of credit in your name only. Make sure that the previous accounts have your new address including your mortgage company, and that the invoices come to you to ensure that they are paid in full. Your attorney will negotiate with your spouse’s counsel on the exact split of this debt, but for now it is important that you remain on top of open account balances and insure they are paid on time. You can not afford to have late payments reporting on your credit especially if you intend to purchase a home of your own when your divorce is complete. Place a Fraud Alert on your credit file by calling one of the three credit repositories. Once you file an alert with one repository they notify the other two on your behalf. This alert will not only make it difficult for identity thieves to steel your personal information, but it will also complicate a vengeful spouse’s attempt at opening credit in your name without your knowledge. While requesting the fraud alert I suggest that you enroll in one of the repositories credit protection subscriptions. For a nominal annual fee you will be notified when your credit file is accessed, account balances change by a given percentage or new accounts have been opened. If you are going through a truly contentious divorce and your spouse is particularly bitter then I suggest forgoing the Fraud Alert and request a Credit Freeze. This will stop everyone, for the exception of government agencies, from accessing your credit profile. If you think that this couldn’t happen then I will share a story. I had a client, a doctor, going through a terrible divorce. Once the divorce was settled he went to purchase a new home and had his credit report pulled. On the report was a credit card he did not recognize with a balance of $60,000.00 plus dollars. Yes, his former wife applied for a credit card in his name, charged it up, paid the minimum

1


payment till after the divorce and left my client with the balance to pay. It definitely happens! Should we sell the home or should I give it to my former spouse? IN RETROSPECT, my client Sandra shouldn't have let her ex-husband keep the house. When Sandra and her husband divorced in June 2005, they decided he would continue living there with their daughter. The plan was for him to refinance the property within 90 days of the divorce and become the sole debtor on the mortgage. That never happened and now the mortgage payments have been late or not sent at all, and the house is in foreclosure. The result: Sandra’s credit is in shambles. Sandra now lives with a friend and can't take on a mortgage of her own, because she is still the primary holder on the existing loan. Sandra’s Credit was impeccable, but what her husband was responsible for, with Sandra as the cosigner, has ruined all her good credit history. What Sandra should have done is have her ex-husband, prior to the divorce being final, apply for a mortgage in his name solely, secure a commitment for this loan and then close on the new loan simultaneously to endorsing the divorce documents. This would have ensured several things: 1) Sandra would have known early on if her former spouse could secure a loan based on his credit and income alone and thus relieve her responsibility of the debt or 2) That the husband could not secure a loan and the property could be listed for sale. Either way Sandra would no longer have responsibility for the debt, she would receive her share of the property equity and her credit would be secure. Fact is, even if the divorce decree spells out clearly who is responsible for what after the divorce the decree doesn't override the original contract with the creditor. Creditors will go after both parties, with equal vigor, just as if they weren't divorced. How does alimony and child support affect your mortgage? Critically! When you apply for a mortgage or if you are keeping the marital residence and have to refinance the existing loan these two costs or sources of income will be used to qualify you for your future financing. Lenders are going to ask to see the settlement agreement or temporary support documents to determine how much of a loan you can afford and if you are paying alimony, child support or both these will likely reduce the loan amount you qualify for. If you are on the receiving end of this support lenders will want to ensure that you will receive this support for at least another three years and that you have been in receipt of these payments for at least the last three months. This point is imperative: I suggest that all support payments be paid to the court and in turn the court will funnel those payments to the recipient. Additionally, it is important to establish a separate account solely for receipt of these payments to simplify evidencing receipt of support to future creditors as well as accounting for year end purposes. If you are the party having to pay the support make sure that the settlement agreement spells out the date the payments begin and end and the age and birthdates of minor children. Divorce also forces you to review your estate plan especially if there are children involved. Part of this plan also includes the creation or continued funding of college

2


tuition plans. First, review any life insurance policies you may have and change the beneficiary from your spouse to either your next of kin or in the case of minor children to a guardian in trust for the children. Changing the beneficiary may be more involved, legally, if your insurance policy has a cash value because this value may be considered marital assets. If neither spouse has insurance and there are minor children, it is a good policy to require both parties to have insurance in place with the minor children as the beneficiary with a trustee. It would also be prudent to have an Estate Attorney create a Pour-Over-Will that flows into a Revocable Living Trust and assign a trustee to administer the will and trust. Proper estate planning is critical to protect your loved ones from having to go through probate and risk the loss of critical assets for young children. Qualified tuition plans, if not currently established, should be created on behalf of the children and be guaranteed to continue to be funded or funded as part of the divorce decree. In many divorces one spouse will take the children as an income deduction. This deduction, for proper college planning, should be claimed by the spouse with the least income to maximize future financial aid for college tuition. It is also advisable when starting a qualified tuition plan that the plan owner be grandparent and not the parent. When your child applies to college they will automatically complete a FAFSA; application for student aid. This application requires the parent claiming the child on their income taxes to reveal all of their income and assets. A qualified tuition plan is considered a parental asset even though it is for the child’s education and thus reduces the child’s overall aid, but by having a grandparent as the owner of the qualified tuition plan the asset does not have to be revealed and the grandparent suffers no gift tax consequences.

"What is the Equitable Distribution Law, and how does it work?" Once a divorce is granted, the Equitable Distribution Law requires a winding up of the economic affairs of the marriage through equitable distribution of the marital property. The Equitable Distribution Law is applicable to all marital actions after July 19, 1980. The premise underlying the Equitable Distribution Law is that marriage is, among other things, an "economic partnership" to which both parties contribute as spouse, parent, wage earner, and/or homemaker. The process of equitable distribution has three parts: 1) categorizing property as marital or separate; 2) evaluating the property and; 3) distribution. How property is held or titled is no longer relevant to how it will be distributed upon divorce. What is important with regard to distribution of property is the date that a particular item of property was acquired and the source of funds used to acquire it. Marital property is defined as all property acquired by either or both spouses during the marriage from the date of the marriage through the commencement of a matrimonial action or the execution of a separation agreement, regardless of the form in which title is held. Courts generally interpret the term "marital property" broadly, so as to increase the size of the marital estate subject to equitable distribution and to effectuate the policy behind the Equitable Distribution Law. While the term "equitable distribution" does not dictate "equal" distribution of marital assets, courts are generally distributing property on an equal basis between spouses in marriage of long duration in which there are children. Separate property is an exception to marital property and is defined as follows: a. Property acquired before marriage or property acquired by bequest, devise, descent, or gift from a person other than your spouse; b. Compensation for personal injuries; c. Property acquired in exchange for or the increase in value of separate property, except to the extent that such appreciation is due in part to the contributions or efforts of the other spouse; or d. Property described as separate property by a written agreement of the parties. Separate property can be considered marital property if it has been co-mingled with marital assets or if it has appreciated in value during the marriage due to the efforts of the spouses. Under the Equitable Distribution Law, both parties to the divorce are required to disclose their respective financial circumstances so that the court will be in the best position to determine the most fair and equitable distribution of marital property, as well as appropriate levels of support and maintenance. To ensure this financial disclosure, the law requires that the parties exchange sworn Statements of Net Worth, which must be accompanied by a current and representative paycheck stub and the most recently filed State and Federal income tax returns. If a party to the divorce fails to comply with this mandatory financial disclosure, they may be subject to penalties or sanctions ordered by the court. Once a divorce has been granted, the court determines how the marital property will be equitably distributed in accordance with thirteen enumerated factors under the law. They are as follows:

1. The income and property of each party at the time of marriage, and at the time of the commencement of the action;


2. The duration of the marriage and the age and health of both parties; 3. The need of a custodial parent to occupy or own the marital residence and to use or own

its household effects; 4. The loss of inheritance and pension rights upon dissolution of the marriage as of the date of dissolution; 5. Any award of maintenance; 6. Any equitable claim to, interest in, or direct or indirect contribution made to the acquisition of such marital property by the party not having title, including joint efforts or expenditures and contributions and services as a spouse, parent, wage earner and homemaker, and to the career or career potential of the other party; 7. The liquid or non-liquid character of all marital property; 8. The probable future financial circumstances of each party; 9. The impossibility of evaluating any component, asset, or any interest in a business, corporation, or profession, and the economic desirability of retaining such asset or interest intact and free from any claim or interference by the other party; 10. The tax consequences to each party; 11. The wasteful dissipation of assets by either spouse; 12. Any transfer or encumbrance made in contemplation of a matrimonial action without fair consideration; 13. Any other factor which the court shall expressly find to be just and proper. SOME PROBLEM AREAS IN VALUATION OF MARITAL PROPERTY Spousal Contribution to the Acquisition of Marital Property or Increase in Value of Separate Property: Section 236 8(d) (6) of the Domestic Relations Law reads: "...Any equitable claim to, interest in, or direct or indirect contribution made to the acquisition of such marital property by the party not having title, including joint efforts or expenditures and contributions and services as a spouse, parent, wage earner, and homemaker, to the career or career potential of the party..." Spousal contribution is a particularly important area for women (especially homemakers) because they tend to underestimate their economic contribution to the marriage, as well as what their financial needs will be once the marriage has ended. Statistics show that the standard of living for women decreases dramatically (bringing many women and their children below the poverty level) after divorce, while the standard of living for divorced men increases. An elaboration and enumeration that a woman's efforts, expenditures, contributions, and services as a spouse, parent, wage earner, and homemaker made to the acquisition of marital property and to their spouse's career or career potential and/or their loss of career or career potential because of their devotion to home and family is essential to a determination of how marital property will be equitably distributed. Such contribution and efforts may range from supporting a spouse in professional school, entertaining friends and business associates, patients, etc. at home, to being primary child-care provider. Each case is unique, and the spousal contribution must be determined based on the particular facts. Determining the Value of Professional Licenses, Professional Distinctions and Honors, and Businesses: Under New York Law (but not most other states), the profession or professional career potential of one spouse is considered marital property. While initially applied to a medical license, courts in New York have extended the principle to other careers requiring licenses or the development of expertise. Where it is difficult to determine the actual interest involved, the court will make a monetary distributive award.


The value of a license is the enhanced earning capacity it provides. This value is determined by the present value (average annual earnings with license minus average annual earnings without license) multiplied by the number of years remaining in worklife, multiplied by the projected wage increases. Where a spouse is actually receiving a salary, then the enhanced earning capacity is based on the actual earnings rather than statistical earnings for the profession. Professional honors have been valued in the same way as licenses to the extent that they provide a provable enhanced earning capacity and the spouse not in possession of the honor contributed to its attainment. In cases where a professional does not put his or her license to its "best use" -- i.e. realize the enhanced earning potential that the license would provide -- the court will have to determine whether or not to value the license as if the full earning potential were being realized based on the particular facts of the situation. Valuation of Businesses: No single approach to the valuation of businesses is mandated by the courts. The value of a corporation (including, but not limited to, professional corporations) can be calculated in several ways depending upon the facts in the situation. Factors that should be considered include: nature of the business; general economic outlook; book value of stock/financial condition of business; earning capacity of the company; dividend paying capacity; goodwill/intangible value; sales of stock/size of block of stock to be valued; market price of similar corporations. Three accepted methods for the valuation of businesses include: 1) asset valuation (assets minus liabilities); 2) capitalization of earnings (multiplying true pre-tax earnings-derived by adjusting net income to account for personal expenses) by a capitalization factor derived after considering risk, past performance, future history and nature of the business; 3) excess earnings: net income is adjusted for personal items, unusual or nonbusiness items, unreported income, or deposits, credit is given for reasonable compensation and taxes, and the net excess earnings are then averaged and capitalized to arrive at goodwill. Goodwill plus tangible assets will give the fair market value. DISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS Depending upon the marital assets involved and the financial position of the parties, courts will apply various methods to the distribution of marital property. A one-time settlement may be ordered, or payments over a period of years upon the sale or disposition of various assets. Courts will be mindful of such issues as tax consequences in determining how marital property will be distributed. Each case is unique and will depend upon the circumstances of the parties involved.
