Planning For Separation or Divorce

We can help you achieve financial clarity and security as you begin a new chapter in your life.

Starting over isn't easy, especially if you have to think about taking care of your family as well as yourself.

Going through a separation or divorce is a challenging time as you may find yourself suddenly disconnected from the life you once led.

And when you combine this feeling with the plethora of unexpected changes that inevitably follow a separation or divorce, navigating it successfully can begin to feel impossible without the right advice to guide you.

In our experience, those experiencing a separation or divorce are often worried about:

  • Understanding the murky legal waters of their current situation
  • Finding a new place to live
  • How their separation or divorce will impact their family and children
  • The state of their personal financial world
  • Becoming financially independent on a single income
  • The implications on their financial goals and plan

With all of these thoughts swirling through your head, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the change and choices you’ll now have to navigate.

But you’re not alone.

According to statistics from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the average Australian marriage lasts only 12 years and the most common age for those getting a divorce is 45.5 for males and 42.9 for females.

This means that most couples going through a separation or divorce are already likely established financially, which may make navigating the situation successfully more complicated than first expected.

With this in mind, it makes sense to seek the help of an experienced financial advisor to help you establish a path to a secure financial future.

When many think of separation or divorce, a lawyer may be the first logical port of call. But your relationship with your lawyer will only last a short while, while your relationship with your trusted financial advisor will last a lifetime, ensuring you’ll have ongoing expert financial guidance well into the future.

That’s where we come in.

At My Wealth Solutions, one of our specialties is helping those going through a separation or divorce successfully navigate the financial implications of their situation and achieve financial independence and security.

We know that separation and divorce can disrupt your carefully-laid financial plans. So we help you get back on track by working with you to define clear financial goals and design a plan that will ensure you’re able to achieve them.

With so much up in the air, it can be hard to know where to even begin planning for your future. We help by providing you with clarity and direction – no matter how unclear your situation is.

Your expert financial advice team is always in your corner, ensuring you can rest easy knowing that your financial world is taken care of.

After all, finding financial direction and achieving financial security is easy with your trusted financial advisor only a phone call away.

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.

So far my experience with Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions has been exemplary. They have offered fantastic, reliable and prompt advice and their knowledge far outweighs the cost of service.

My experience with Guy Freeman has been totally professional and totally satisfactory. Guy has managed my small investments but maintained at the same time a personal interest in my health and well being… I have to say that I have complete trust in Guy and am so pleased he is looking after my investments giving me a secure future.

Jennette B.

I was recommended Guy Freeman’s help with planning my financial future, and am very satisfied and reassured by his input over the last couple of years. I’ve actually received more input than I thought possible…sound investments; making a will, life insurance, income protection insurance, and realistic plans for retirement… I feel ‘looked after’ by this company, and excited about my financial future.

Jack 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.

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.
