Question 5: Where can I find a financial advisor?
Financial advisors can be independent agents or part of a larger firm. A great place to find an advisor is through the National Association of Personal Finance Advisors (NAPFA), an organization of fee-only advisors (link here).
You can search for local fee-only advisors on the NAPFA website. Note that some advisors on this site charge AUM fees, not just flat fees or hourly rates.
