Sound Financial Advice when it Matters Most

“Why would I need to hire a financial firm that specializes in transitions? All I want is someone to point me in the right direction for my finances.”


Your decisions now carry much more weight than simply planning for your income in the future. There are tax implications in each choice you make throughout a significant life change. There are considerations your lawyer or your CPA needs to be aware of. Without a finance degree (and long hours examining every aspect of your financial life, both past and future), it can be almost impossible to know which road is the right one to take.

That’s where our team of experts comes into play. Going through a major life transition, especially one that wasn’t part of your original plan, can leave you making decisions based on emotion or what seems right in the immediate situation.

The truth is that there are hundreds of subtle nuances associated with each decision you make. A professional partner like California Wealth Transitions can offer you the support, guidance, and expertise you need to feel confident about your future.

Protect your Interests in a Divorce

Divorce is often messy and emotional. During a time of uncertainty, the last thing you need to worry about is how to take care of all the financial ramifications of divorce. Dividing assets including your stock options, retirement accounts, and investments is much more complex than deciding who keeps the house. Our professionals can help you and your attorney consider all the implications of your decisions at this time, to protect your interests and limit tax burdens, both present and future.
