The New York Statement of Net Worth. If it’s not familiar to you, it’s a zinger, and you might tear your hair out getting to the bottom of it.
But ask any New York divorce lawyer. Even if you do know what you’re doing, it can be a zinger, too.
That’s because most law firms—including maybe yours—aren’t designed to leverage information to its eyeballs—like it can be. In this golden age of technology, divorce lawyers are capable of utilizing machines to a) enter raw information: names, addresses, birthdates, bank account balances, stock values, pensions, and the like— just once , b) leverage technology to perform calculations within the myriad of worksheets, statements, and other documents you are responsible for, and c) pour the calculations into said documents.
The concept of entering information just once is crucial. You don’t have to cross-verify your accuracy: just enter it once, accurately. You don’t have to chase down multiple locations to make an adjustment to one piece of data: you simply change it once, in one single place.
Even better, EzSupport-NY now comes with an electronic data collection module called “SupportNewYorkLite.” That gives your client a form to fill out—in the ease of his or her home or office.
Your client receives a simple Microsoft Word file. Once completed, he or she returns it to you (via email). You review it for any red flags or missed entries, then click to “import” it into your EzSupport-NY software.
When this is complete, you’ve just shrunk a few hours’ work into mere minutes. You’ve saved yourself time, saved your client fees, and increased the accuracy of your data, since your client knows his or her finances best. You’ve also made your client part of an overriding solution: and leveraged technology at its finest.
