    • Expert Witness Report for High Asset Divorce Cases
      • In the State of Minnesota, having worked with many clients during or immediately following a divorce, it is common for courts to assume an immediate, income return on liquid assets equal to 4% (or more) of the portfolio value that are to be withdrawn for current living expenses before the client reaches her full retirement age. In my experience, I have found this approach cannot be justified by sound financial planning for several reasons.

        While good intentioned, when the 4% rule of thumb for income withdrawals is used in divorce cases, this method ends up harming a person’s financial situation as they try to move forward in their life post-divorce. The client faces the danger of running out of money during her lifetime and can end up living well below her marital standard of living.

        I wrote a 19-page report that is customizable for each client’s financial situation to be used in a court trial. It describes in detail what the withdrawal rate should be based on current economic conditions and information rather than using a method that does not correctly calculate a client’s return on assets.
