Michael RingelAs a financial coach, my mission is to educate families, business owners, divorced women and special needs families how to achieve financial success through the implementation of financial strategies. I assist divorcing men and women prepare their case information statements, determine assets available for equitable distribution and stay involved with clients to divide and transfer their assets, as per their property settlement agreement, including their retirement assets. I prepare the Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDRO) help my clients transfer the money that they are owed.
