Planning for a growing family is a big change in both your personal and financial world.

Now is the time: you’ve decided to start thinking seriously about having kids or might even be expecting one on the way.

But as you consider how being a parent will change your life, you find yourself coming back to one question: how exactly will growing your family affect your financial future?

Having a child will transform your life, especially when it comes to your financial world. Growing your family can also include a whole new set of financial challenges you may never have thought to consider.

But starting a family doesn’t have to be a financial negative.

What if we told you it’s entirely possible to help your children get the best out of life and enjoy your own life to the fullest as well?

With the right kind of financial advice to guide you, balancing a family and your unique financial needs becomes easier than you may think.

We provide the right kind of advice, no matter what your family looks like.

The average family has changed from the traditional mother, father and 2.2 kids model in recent years. That’s why we believe that your financial plan should reflect exactly what family looks like to you.

Just a few of the everyday families we continue to help include:

  • Stepparents or those who are combining their existing families
  • Single parents who want to know how to do more with a single income
  • Same-sex couples who may be seeking alternative methods to grow their family
  • Unmarried partners or those wanting to protect both themselves and their children

Our team of financial advisors are your personal source of financial guidance, no matter what growing your family means to you.

We provide financial advice tailored to your unique financial circumstances, needs and wants.

That means you can spend less time worrying about your money, and more time planning for the new addition to the family.

With your team of financial advisors by your side, starting a family and creating your dream financial future is easy.

We understand that parenthood can be stressful and can help make the financial side of your expanding family as worry-free as possible.

Common Financial Challenges Of Growing Your Family

When you first think about starting a family, it can be easy to get caught up in the excitement of this new chapter in your life.

But planning for parenthood also comes with a whole new set of financial challenges to navigate.

These financial challenges can include:

  • Effectively managing a budget with children to consider
  • Stopping work for a period of time to care for your children
  • Understanding the pros and cons of childcare versus staying at home
  • Learning what expenses, such as school fees and extracurricular activities, you may expect as your child grows up.
  • Balancing your financial goals with the needs of your growing family
  • Considering whether or not to find a bigger home

When it comes to growing your family, finding a balance between meeting your financial goals and leaving enough of a financial buffer for any unexpected expenses is key.

That’s why having a clear, comprehensive financial plan is so important.

A financial plan tailored to your unique financial circumstances, needs and wants can help you to understand exactly where you are on your financial journey and which steps you should take next.

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.”

—Anthony Brandt


…Right off the bat Daniel Judge seemed very genuine and passionate about what he does.  He took an interest in my life, history and where I want to be in 10 to 15 years in the future.  He explained (my) options, but he kept me in control, which made me feel safe and reassured that I was doing the right thing for my family.  We signed up with Daniel and we have no regrets.  We have eyes on our investment, our fortnightly contributions are easily managed and they keep in regular contact.  We would highly recommend Daniel Judge as a financial planner to help you reach financial independence…

Robert Creaton and his skilful team helped me and my wife through the process of financial planning by guiding us to take the right steps. I would recommend Robert and My Wealth Solutions to anyone who wants to secure their future without any stress.

Amit M.

My wife and I decided to make some changes to the way we were managing our finances and planning for our future financial security. Through the process of re-financing for the construction of our new family home,…from the very first meeting we had with Ben, we were comfortable and at the same time excited about…to our financial planning and future position.

Andrew H.

We have been seeing Guy at MWS for a few years now, and his advice has been invaluable. We are a young family trying to make the best of what we have, and Guy really puts it all into perspective, so it isn’t overwhelming. Whenever we meet with him, I always walk away feeling so motivated that we are making good choices for the future…We’ll be long-term clients and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending him to others.

Louan W.

My husband and I have been very impressed with MWS. They have a great team of people working with us as well as a fantastic network of local services they know well and trust. Very high value for us.

Amber R.

…They have provided my partner and I peace of mind that our future is more secure especially with a baby on the way. Our super is working for us rather than the big companies…and they have put a smart financial strategy in place that meets our life goals. I have recommended MWS to many of my friends and will to anyone new as I am confident that they conduct themselves in the best interest of their clients.

Katrina M.

Our experience has been very positive. Ben has set us up for our future and now we can feel satisfied knowing that we have our finances in good hands. We no longer stress about what we or our family would be financially accountable for should something happen to any of us. Thank you again.

Darron & Michelle H.

Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have been incredible to work with. They discussed our financial situation and proposed ways to improve our position in an easy but professional manner that left us feeling very secure about the future. Timely responses to our questions and keeping us up to date on changes and progress only enhanced the feeling of trust we had with them. Thoroughly recommend the team if you are looking for sound financial assistance.
