Is there a best way to go about finding and hiring a financial planner? I'm in the Western suburbs of Chicago and am not sure where to start the process or what are the key things to look for.

I was just let go from my job and will be getting my severance package in one lump sum, which is prompting the Mrs and I to get more serious about our finances. We're hoping to find someone that can offer advice on how to make the most of our money and steer us towards better financial decisions and planning. I've discussed some things with our 401k managers, but their advice is exclusively investment oriented. I'm hoping to find something more comprehensive. Is there a good recommendation service or can someone recommend a planner?
