The importance of getting your finances into some kind of order
Divorced, separated, widowed or going into another relationship; finances are important. However, boring the prospect may be, if you are starting a new chapter in your life, you need to get your finances in some kind of order. This is not only to protect yourself and your family for things which could happen in the future, but to give you the peace of mind that you have done everything you can to take control of your life once more.
There are a number of general financial planning principles which a good advisor will follow to assess what you need. Long gone are the days of “mis-selling” products which you really didn’t need. (Think of PPI).
If you have children, you probably want to put something in place to protect them in the future too. Whatever income you have, it’s all about using every penny wisely.
You could be in your 30’s or 60’s – it’s irrelevant; it’s always worth speaking to someone in the know, to ensure you are making good use of the funds available to you. Get a divorce financial planner.
One of the first things a divorce financial planner will assess is your needs and aspirations for the future.
- When do you plan to retire?
- Do you have any pensions?
- Do you want to own your home? Where do you want to live?
- Do you want your children to be privately educated?
- What do you want your lifestyle to look like?
