One of the more overlooked areas of financial planning in general (and divorce planning in particular), is the subject of college planning. Since "college" is often excluded from consideration in many state divorce statutes, the topic is often overlooked by clients and their attorneys, but can have significant financial impact, not only on the family's future financial goals, but also on the college student's own life.
A divorce financial professional can add significant value to their services by educating their divorcing clients on how divorce affects college aid and planning. Many divorce financial professionals (as well as financial advisors in general) do not have a solid working knowledge of how financial aid is calculated or how college costs are met during the college years. This workshop will discuss the college financial aid and aid application process as well as how to incorporate college costs and considerations into your divorce planning for those clients with college-bound children. Strategies to consider and pitfalls to avoid will be included in the discussion.
Brief Bullet Points of Presentation:
Overview of College Cost Issues
Understanding Financial Aid Options for the Three Categories of Families
Financial Aid, EFC and the Eligibility Formulas (Federal versus Institutional Methods)
The Aid Application Process: Who Should Fill Out the Forms and Why
Application of Planning for All Income Levels
How Divorce Affects Aid Eligibility and College Planning
Divorce and Impact on Base Year Financial Aid Considerations
Strategies Beyond Financial Aid: Dealing with High Income Families
Effective Strategies to Maximize Aid and Case Study

Rev. Rob Radosti is an itinerant motivational and inspirational speaker, evangelist, teacher, missionary & author who has seen the power of Jesus transform lives in over 30 nations around the globe. He is known for his radical testimony and his internationally recognized "Manifest Identity" mini schools. After a powerful deliverance from satan worship & the occult, drugs, alcoholism, suicide and more, Rob began to travel the USA and the nations releasing the message of the Cross - a calling which sparked a blissful revolution fueled by the Glory of God. Rob met his future wife Millie as she was experiencing a powerful encounter with Jesus while living in a mental health facility - an encounter that would free her from years of abuse, mental illness, suicide, drugs & more. They were married soon after, and together they began preaching the Gospel everywhere from satanic clubs and bars to the jungles of the Amazon, and from the skate parks of New Zealand to some of the biggest conferences and crusades on the planet. Rob and Millie have witnessed countless supernatural signs & wonders, deliverances, salvations, healings and scores of lives changed as the Kingdom of God is released on the earth. Rob has had the opportunity to sit under, minister and travel with men such as Bill Johnson, Todd Bentley, Jeff Jansen, John Crowder, Doug Addison, Harold Eberle, Jabin Chavez, Georgian Banov, Ryan Wyatt, Rick Joyner, Bob Jones and many more. Rob and Millie's vision is to help the human race discover both their origins - and their destination in Jesus Christ by the preaching of the undiluted Gospel of Grace with signs and wonders. Rob & Millie and their three children currently base in New Jersey, USA. They are available for conferences, special events, mission trips, intensive schools and more.
Rob Radosti Ministries was founded by Revs. Rob & Millie Radosti and exists to help humanity discover both their origin and their destiny in Jesus Christ. Find Rob at www.RobRadosti.com http://www.RobRadosti.com
