I cannot recommend Keith enough! I am knee deep in my divorce and I cannot say enough about how supported I have felt once I contacted and retained Austin Divorce Planners. Keith has been available in person, zoom and text and is incredibly prompt with follow up and clear communication. He has been with me as I transitioned attorneys and came with me to my mediation. In mediation he caught many things the lawyers did not and for that alone I am so grateful. Knowledge is power and having his knowledge in my case has helped me tremendously with what my settlement should look like in detail along with what my budget will look like after divorce. There are many things he has brought to my attention that I did not know and I have pushed for with my lawyers. Having him on my team has been a huge asset and again I am so grateful I found him when I did!
Keith has done a number of pension valuations for my divorce cases. He is always incredibly responsive, reasonable in cost, and has helped me settle a number of cases.

I am a family lawyer. I recently had a case and Keith came on board as my client’s financial/divorce planner. He helped us analyze financials and participated in mediation. He was very knowledgeable and efficient. As mediation progressed, he provided information quickly and was thorough in his analysis. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help walking through the financial aspects of a divorce, to anyone who needs help financially planning through and after a divorce and to family lawyers who need a quick and accurate analysis on the division of the community estate.
Very knowledgeable and experienced divorce planner. I highly recommend him and his services.
Mr. Powell has been very helpful in preparing for my new future. With ending a marriage of 50+ years I needed someone that would listen to my needs and to consider what’s in my best interest. Keith has been very considerate and thoughtful, he has not pressured me but guided me in making my decisions. I highly recommend Mr. Powell.
Keith is knowledgeable and helping. He prepared my spreadsheet during the divorce process and explained me all the financial documents. Though I had few days left for mediation, he still helped me, sat till late night and prepared my spreadsheet. I had no knowledge of financial documents since I had seen them for the first time during the discovery process. Keith helped me in understanding all the documents and the spreadsheet. After discussing with him, I felt confident during mediation. I am really thankful to him for helping me out.
Keith Powell was easy to talk to and he explained things for me to understand easily.
I found Keith Powell through my divorce attorney and Keith was an amazing resource for me during my settlement negotiations. Keith's role as a Certified Divorce Financial Planner, helped me to evaluate the financial arrangements my husband's attorney was proposing; and feel confident I would be able to support myself and pursue my new divorced life. I am a very visual person and the plan Keith presented enabled me to see how my retirement goals were protected and my budget planning contributed to my success. Highly recommend Keith!
I found Keith through Google and his reviews were good, so it made sense to go through a divorce financial planner as a mediator instead of my now ex-wife and I both paying to hire lawyers. Keith was knowledgeable and helpful for the most part, but there were many things I had researched about asset allocations in a divorce he had never even heard of. Additionally Keith and his assistant sometimes took days to return phone calls or texts.
The biggest issue I had was the lack of communication and organization. What should have been handled in 2 meetings ended up taking three because Keith failed to tell both my ex-wife and myself all documents needed for our second meeting, so we were forced to attend a third meeting to reach an agreement with our finances and my assets at his going rate of $195/hr. An unnecessary expense had Keith just told us what we needed to bring in the first place for our second meeting.
