Once the decision has been made to separate, what happens next?
1. Consult a family lawyer
2. Rewrite your future, work out how you want your life to look after the split

A qualified Financial Planner help you during divorce to work out:
✔️ What a solo budget looks like
✔️ What housing you can afford (and if you can keep the family home)
✔️ If there are funding gaps
✔️ Sort out a backup plan (yes this may mean insurance)
✔️ What your FIF (Financial Independence Figure is)
✔️ Help you re-write your future
✔️Look further into the future to your retirement funding
❌ The last thing we want is to see you retain the house only to find out a year or two later you cannot afford it.
