Cheryl Glazer Discusses Divorce Settlements, Business Entities and Taxes at the Association of Divorce Financial Planners 2014 Catalyst Conference

August 28, 2014

EAST NORTHPORT, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2014

In her presentation, Ms. Glazer examines a single business entity when structured as a C-corp, S-corp and LLC, and demonstrates the tax implications of each in terms of property settlement negotiations. "People caught up in the drama and upset of divorce often overlook the long-term tax implications of their decisions," explains Ms. Glazer. "My job is to educate them before settlements are finalized and become difficult to change."

Andrew Samalin, president of the ADFP, agrees that the tax implications of many decisions made during the divorce process are not fully recognized until tax time rolls around. "Ms. Glazer's presentation will create awareness of tax issues for our members," Samalin said. "Even if taxes are not your area of expertise, this presentation will help you recognize when you may need to involve a tax expert or forensic accountant for your client's benefit."

As a divorce financial consultant, Ms. Glazer guides clients through each step in the divorce process from initial separation through post-settlement planning and asset management. She also assists divorce counsel in analyzing documentation and uncovering any inconsistencies or hidden income. She developed "Transitions Solutions", a support program that allows clients to uncover solutions, adopt smart divorce strategies, build confidence and look forward to post-divorce life.

Ms. Glazer holds a Masters in Taxation from Villanova University and is an expert witness in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. She is experienced in litigation, mediation and collaborative engagements. Her resume includes a broad range of positions in business and financial services with emphasis on accounting, business operations, strategic initiatives, and financial, estate and tax planning for families.

The 2014 Catalyst Conference at the Westin San Diego includes the ADFP Pre-Conference Institute on October 13 followed by two days of conference programming on October 14-15. The ADFP has also added one day of joint sessions with the Academy of Professional Family Mediators (APFM) on October 16 at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa.
