Divorce is a mental health issue.

Divorce is a mental health issue.

Katie Price is currently in the midst of a bitter divorce with ex-husband Kieran Hayler after several cheating allegations.  The mum-of-five even admitted to drinking alcohol to escape her depression, and revealed she sought medical help to see her through her darkest period.  She was very recently arrested for drink driving. It was revealed that Katie might have to sell her mansion in Horsham, West Sussex, which she previously shared with Kieran, in order to ‘pay off huge debts.’ (i)...

Financial Planning Week Interview with Charlie Reading

Financial Planning Week Interview with Charlie Reading

As we come to the close of Financial Planning Week 3-10 Oct (yes, I know, they didn’t start it on a Monday or end it on a Friday!) but it is still a good opportunity to raise the profile of a profession that doesn’t get the limelight it deserves. Some people confuse financial planners with mortgage advisors or insurance salesman. Yes, some also provide those services. But planners do just that – they help you to plan ahead using cashflow forcasting, and create a vision of how your...

Romance And Financial Planning: Interview With Divorce Financial Advisor Gary Jefferies

  “But it’s just not romantic!” Cry the ladies, when the words ‘Pre-Nup’ or ‘Living Together Agreement’ are uttered. Well it’s not romantic fighting over the assets either, if you are one of the 50% (if you include cohabiting couples) who will separate at some point and need to split the house, the savings, the pensions, and anything else they or the lawyers see fit to divide. And here’s the thing – I worked out once that your are about 7 times more likely to leave a relationship alive...

Will Dispute Resolution Put Its Money Where Its Mouth Is?

  How many times a year does a Divorce Show come to London?   Well the last time was 2011 (I remember because I was the one putting on the event – the Starting Over Show) but this year, an entrepreneur called Mr Smith O’Connor is running his own event in Kensington on 19-20 October, and I’ve signed up as an exhibitor (and been invited to be one of the keynote speakers) because let’s face it, how often do we get provided with a public platform in our own Capital City to...

Educational Value – Add This To The Divorce Parenting Plan

Educational Value – Add This To The Divorce Parenting Plan

When divorcing, sometimes the children’s educational futures are not taken into account – especially if the children are still very young. But by discussing long-term plans for the children’s education early on in the divorce process, the financial implications could well impact on how a couple decide to split their assets. A good education can be invaluable, but it may also require significant investment – and long-term planning. In 2016, the average cost to parents of...

Can’t See The Trees For The Forest: The Westminster Legal Policy Forum

Can’t See The Trees For The Forest: The Westminster Legal Policy Forum

The 2018 Westminster Policy Forum was, for me, like walking through a forest of information, good ideas, and a genuine commitment to supporting everyone in our society at every economic level.  There was a call for policies focused on prevention rather than just ‘coping strategies’ – but an overriding sense of hopelessness pervaded the forest, as some of the speakers grappled with the illogicality of short-term fiscal thinking. When it came to the modernisation and improvement of the HM...

Is a 50-50 divorce split really what you think it is? Paula Ryan explains:

  Is a 50-50 uncomplicated divorce split really as simple as you think it should be?   Financial Planner Paula Ryan answers that question:      Certainly if you are looking to sort out the divorce finances yourselves, it may be worth having a quick ‘coffee chat’ with me, so we can look at the tax implications, the best way to split the assets, and also looking at the pensions. It’s not always as simple as splitting pensions half and half.  It might not look as if you have that much in the...

How A Divorce PA Can Help You Have A Better Divorce

How A Divorce PA Can Help You Have A Better Divorce

“It doesn’t have to be like this, David” I said to my new, overwrought client who was desperately scanning through his emails for the details of the expensive, litigious, “big gun” London solicitor that his friend had recommended. “It’ll make this situation even harder for you, and cost a fortune… why not work with a mediator?” At the time, David was too upset to even open the post after the recent departure of his wife.  But over the ensuing weeks, as we worked through each situation, letter...

“I should buy the Mediator Christmas presents every year”

Robert went through years of conflict in order to be able to see his children after a bitter divorce, and despite having to go to court on more than one occasion, mediation was what finally helped end those years of stress and misery.

Should I Hire A Hit Man For My Ex?

Should I Hire A Hit Man For My Ex?

One of the questions a divorcing person might sometimes ask is: “Should I hire a hit man for my Ex?” Well, there’s two ways to read that question. One is – give your ex a present of a hit man because perhaps you know someone they don’t like very much (hopefully not you!?) The second is, getting divorced can be very stressful and I know for a fact that some perfectly nice people have had that thought pass through their mind at least once when things were getting really tricky....

How do you mediate divorce with a narcissist?

How do you mediate divorce with a narcissist?

There seems to be an increase in the number of divorcees accusing their spouses as being narcissistic, and it could be that the term is being used more widely because these days, it’s so easy to find a list on the internet of “How to spot if your spouse is a narcissist” – though many of the traits and ‘tell-tale signs” are not that far from behaviour most of us might demonstrate on a bad day! But perhaps the apparent rise in this style of behaviour is a reflection of our times, and the...

Trump’s War Speech Shows The Weakness Of Dispute On All Levels

With Trump blasting out his rhetoric to the UN threatening to destroy North Korea and undermining, completely, existing peaceful agreements on reducing arms proliferation with Iran – deliberately crushing opportunities to mediate and find healthier solutions – the parallels with a nasty divorce were inescapable. But when you are dealing with a narcissistic opponent – as many divorcing couples are – how can peaceful solutions possibly work?     Look at it this way...

To have and to hold – insurance for married couples

To have and to hold Arranging insurance for married couples should arguably go hand in hand with saying “I do”.   Financial matters are perhaps not the first consideration when getting married. But it is vitally important to review current financial arrangements and establish new plans at the start of a significant new stage of life. Perhaps the first and most obvious thing to consider is wedding insurance, given that even a simple ceremony and reception will cost many thousands of pounds –...
