Vance Spoke on Divorce Issues at 2011 NACVA Annual Conference in San Diego, CA
June 9th, 2011
Robert Vance presented "Breakin' Up Is Hard to Do - Dividing the Marital Estate and Figuring Alimony" at the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA) 2011 Annual Consultants' Conference in San Diego, CA. Robert also presented at the 2009 Annual Conference in Boston. The session was a guide to analyzing and presenting a proposed marital estate division coupled with a scientific method to calculate alimony payable by the higher-earning spouse to the lower-earning spouse that is sophisticated enough to withstand cross examination, yet straightforward enough for non-CPAs to understand. The alimony analysis incorporated aspects of a simplified, lifetime financial plan based on the proposed division that contrasts the post-divorce standard of living with the pre-divorce standard of living. The subject matter somewhat paralleled Robert's article on this topic published in the TN Bar Journal.
