Whether you are married or in a de facto relationship, separating from your partner can be one of the most challenging times in your life. Current trends suggest that one couple in three will face the complicated emotional and financial issues of a separation or divorce.
When separating from your partner you'll need to review any joint investments, bank accounts, superannuation funds, personal insurance, health insurance, and possibly your tax arrangements. If you have children, you may need to address child maintenance arrangements too.

The challenges can be complex and speaking to a financial adviser can help guide you through the financial implications of separation and guide you in the next chapter in your life.
