understanding your financial options
Once you are organised and understand your current financial situation, the next question will be ‘what happens next?’
Understanding your options can give you more comfort and a sense of control.
what you need to know
Some questions that you may need help to answer might be:
- How should the divorce settlement be structured?
- Which assets work better for you?
- What sort of housing can you afford?
- Where will your income come from?
We can use our knowledge and experience to show you your options. We can financially model a range of possible scenarios to show you what your short and long term financial position might look like given certain decisions. It can give you a solid foundation and help you make informed decisions.
It’s a visually simple and smart reality check, and we advise that it is undertaken as early in the process as possible.
factor in the future
As you’ve learned, things can change and the arrangement you make today may not be work as well for you tomorrow.
You will need to consider the effects of inflation on commitments such as child support, and the after-tax implications of the assets you keep or let go. It can make a substantial difference to your divorce settlement claim.
how ipac helps
Whilst we can certainly help, even if financial settlement has already been reached, we believe in the value of exploring different scenarios at an early stage.
ipac charges on a fee-for-service basis. You will know up-front what the cost is, and it won’t be based on the value of your assets. It’s based on the value of the service we provide.
It can help you make good decision today with the confidence you are prepared for tomorrow.
