Westside Article – June 2016

Going through a separation or divorce is a difficult and daunting time. You will have a lot on your mind about what the future holds and where you go from here and may feel totally overwhelmed by everything you have to consider.

One vitally important thing to think about is how the breakdown of your relationship affects you in terms of your assets, estate and, most importantly, any children that you may have.  There will be areas that need dealing with immediately to maintain stability such as bills and mortgage payments.  However, once these are taken care of, it is time to look to your longer-term financial future and seek advice from a professional Independent Financial Adviser.

Hamnett Wealth Management specialises in advising clients going through divorce and separation.  We can discuss the best way to split assets for separating couples and consider the tax and legal consequences.  We are an accredited member of Resolution, an organisation of 6,500 family lawyers and other professionals in England and Wales, who believe in a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters.

Hamnett Wealth Management is a local, independent financial advice company who’ve been helping people since 1988.  We are small enough to care about each and every one of our valued clients, building trust and long-lasting relationships, yet we are large enough to provide specialist financial planning advice on your pensions, investments, inheritance tax and estate planning needs.

Jonathan Rowley, Director of Hamnett Wealth Management, said: “No separation or divorce is the same, each individual has their own specific requirements, aims and financial objectives. We are empathetic to your needs and treat your situation with respect and sensitivity.  Divorce and separation can be financially complex but we speak in plain English and explain everything comprehensively.   We encourage you to ask as many questions as you need to until you are comfortable and feel able to make an informed decision as to how you wish to progress.”
