The event that could save you breaking the bank if you are breaking up
Breaking up is hard to do and it is easy to make costly mistakes – that’s why Starting Over Roadshow creator Suzy Miller is urging people to come to her event next Thursday (11 November).
Farnham Castle, a popular wedding venue in Surrey, will host the event which will give people access to a range of local experts giving advice on financial planning, parenting, mediation, wellbeing, dealing with debt, legal issues, prenuptials, wills and even events for singles. The roadshow takes place between 5.30 and 8.30pm.
There are still a few places left at one-to-one ‘pow-wow’ sessions with experts where people can have a cup of tea and a no-obligation chat.
“A staggering 60 per cent of people will know someone going through a divorce or break up. Often people don’t know where to turn when they are breaking up and end up breaking down in the process. Coming to the event is a perfect way to meet experts face to face without having to resort to looking in the telephone directory and spending precious time trying to find the right advisers,” explained Suzy.
The Starting Over Show (SOS) www.startingovershow.co.uk was launched two years ago by entrepreneur Suzy Miller to help people going through a divorce or breakup. Having been through a difficult separation herself, the mother-of-three used her experiences to create an event that would encourage a non-combative approach to divorce.
More than 115,000* marriages in the UK end in divorce and the SOS show offers help with almost every aspect of this difficult time.
Suzy says: “A relationship break-up can be the perfect time to make positive changes and the event provides an opportunity to gain legal and financial advice, relationship and parenting coaching and even holistic healing to help with relaxation.”
According to Ian Taylor of Godalming-based Davenport Financial Management Ltd www.davenportfinancial.co.uk, divorce rates are high on the Surrey and Hampshire border, making Farnham an ideal location for the SOS event.
“Divorce rates in this area are high, and the size of the assets being split are probably among the largest in the country. Making sure assets are fairly shared can be extremely complex, especially when it comes to pension arrangements. We are urging people who are thinking about divorce or currently going through a break up to come to the event and seek professional advice.”
Ian Taylor is a Resolution-accredited pension and divorce specialist and a member of the Collaborative Family Law Group based on the Surrey Hampshire border.
