I think I need a financial planner...

How they hell do I go about finding one? How do I know what this should cost me?

Wife and I will both have pensions coming to us.

Both invest in 457 type plans.

I have some 401K money, so does she.

She also holds a stock or two.

Her folks use someone but they are at least an hour from us, Does this really matter after our first meeting with them?
