A change in marital status is never easy. If you’re recently married or engaged, it’s important to understand the financial effects and goals of marriage. If you’re dealing with the emotional fallout from the death of a spouse or life partner, you likely have questions about how to organize your financial future.
Or, if you’re preparing for a divorce, you are probably thinking about how to reach an equitable and fair settlement.
Marital transition is an emotional time when many people feel particularly vulnerable. At the same time, it is vitally important to take a reasonable, analytical look at the financial arrangements being made through marriage, a separation or divorce agreement, or after the death of a spouse/ partner to ensure you are prepared to tackle your future finances.
