Getting a new financial advisor a wise move following divorce

| Sep 12, 2019 | Divorce |

Getting divorced makes it possible for two married individuals in Pennsylvania to finally break free from each other and move on with their lives. However, research shows that many women still decide to stick with the same financial advisor that the other party used prior to the divorce. In reality, it may be beneficial to start fresh with one’s own financial advisor.

Divorcing women may especially want to seek their own advisors if their spouses tended to have closer relationships with the advisors they had during the marriage. In this situation, divorce presents an opportunity to talk to other advisors and find out which ones may best represent their needs. In this way, they can have advisors who can tailor their financial services to them, rather than to their ex-spouses.

Seeking out another advisor is also a good idea if a woman’s divorce has caused her to no longer be a big enough customer for the advisor used during the marriage. In this scenario, the woman may end up not receiving as much attention as she received while still married. This is particularly true if she decided to give up substantial assets as part of the divorce proceeding so that she could keep the family home for herself and the children.

In addition to securing a solid financial advisor, however, it is also imperative to secure the help of an attorney. An attorney in Pennsylvania can help divorcing individuals to weigh all of their options when it comes to issues like property division and child custody, then make the best decisions given the circumstances. The attorney’s main goal is to help the client to achieve a fair and comprehensive settlement during the divorce proceeding.
