Marlene has consulted with hundreds of divorce attorneys on the financial issues related to family law including division of family property (including the family home), child support, alimony, and pension valuation. She is an expert in the use of the leading divorce financial planning software in the United States and can create scenarios with the software that give spouses various options to decide how they want their financial lives to look after divorce.

She can also answer questions related to whether a spouse can move with their child of children to another state be it for reasons of work, a new relationship, being with family or otherwise. Marlene consults on any issue dealing with families and children whether those families and children are a product of marriage, divorce, same-sex marriage or otherwise (including single-parent households).
