Divorce Planning

Divorce Financial Planning


You are seeking accuracy and clarity for your financial settlement.  You wish to make informed decisions about assets and to create a financial plan for your new future.  


Without the involvement of a financial professional, a financial settlement may be agreed based on inaccurate or incomplete information. 


Similarly, without the involvement of a financial planner, the implications of altering financial arrangements may not be fully considered or appreciated.  For example, a pension split on the basis of a given percentage of the ‘Cash Equivalent Transfer Value’ (CETV) may not produce benefits in the proportions intended.  Optimal Planning can advise on the advantages and disadvantages of altering each pension arrangement.
