Firstly congratulations. The good news is, we can assist you and your loved one have a the life you are looking for. The recommendation we would make is to fill in our two minute form and make sure you have addressed the changes in finances properly. Being married means you share finances, maybe you put your income in a joint account and your philosophies on money could be different. One of you could be a “spender” and the other could be an “avoider”. It’s time to align your budgets, make sure you are protecting your income and start saving up for important goals in your life like getting a house etc.
Have you and your spouse talked about your goals? You both are on a path together and when you meet our financial advisors, they can help you get clarity even on things like who is responsible for paying the bills and the amount that would be acceptable to spend on fun activities.
Getting married also means there are new financial obligations now and potentially in the future. For example, what happens if an unfortunate event occurs and the other half is left with financial and personal burdens?
If you don’t plan, you plan to fail.
A harsh statement but very true. Having a clear shared vision is one way of ensuring you’re on the right track together, and that you are working towards common goals.
When a couple don’t see a future together, there is the emotional and financial stress that comes with divorce or be separated.
The Expenses Are Not Halved.
Some people think that when we separate the expenses half and this is not necessarily true. The expenses for children for example won’t drop if one parent is looking after them. If you don’t know where to start, it might be time to fill in our two minute form. This situation may present challenges new to you.
You May Have Made The Financial Decisions?
You may also normally let your partner deal with all the financial decision making because we all have roles in relationships. This could be the first time you’ve had to face major financial decisions on your own. The good news is you’re not alone and one of our financial planners can help. All you need to do is fill in the two minute form.

Getting help with navigating this new road is critical. You’re not alone and often the cost of the financial advice you will receive can be covered indirectly by your superannuation or any commissions the financial planner receives.
Stress over money issues is virtually unavoidable in divorce, and what may help during this difficult time is someone partial who is not going to judge you but provide clarity and make the major financial considerations easier and simpler for the future.
Now that your future and goals have changed, a financial adviser can help you understand your range of options and map out a plan which can help you deal with the challenges of the future.
.It is important to get a second opinion related to money you have received. According to Robert Kyosaki author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” the general population receive little to no training on where to invest their money. He says because of poor financial education, 90% of people accumulate only 10% of all the money/assets in the world and the remaining 10% of world’s population accumulate 90% of the wealth in the world.

I deserve a holiday- I Want to Spend my Windfall on that.
A lot of us feel we have deprived ourselves of luxuries during our time either because we bought a home and barely scrapped by or had kids and made sure they had a lot of the things our parents didn’t.
A financial advisor can help you look at your goals, help weigh your options and clarify what is the best strategy moving forward. They will even make sure you don’t sacrifice too much to have a couple of rewards (a holiday or car etc).
Your Future- is it in your hands or someone else’s?
We are reminded of the great Earl Nightingale’s comment about getting a fire going for a fireplace; “Give me heat and then I’ll add the wood”. This is how most people run their lives. We can’t rely on someone or the government to look after us in retirement or in the future.
