Months later, Bart decided financial industries was the path he wanted to take in order to help people.
Becoming a certified divorce financial specialist was not always in his plan, but Bart realized how much people suffered financially during a divorce wanted to find a way to help them. Many non-financial spouses find themselves completely at a loss once a divorce is finalized as they hadn’t handled the finances before.
