A Very Modern Divorce
As a firm of Chartered Financial Planners, we regularly provide advice to individuals who are going through the divorce process.
Typically this advice is focused on the pension and other financial aspects of divorce.
We work closely with solicitors to ensure that the most suitable option for sharing pension assets is selected, and that this is implemented in the right way, as well as covering other financial considerations.
It was interesting to read this article in the National Post from Canada, describing how Social Media is becoming a new important consideration for the divorce process.
They report that increasing numbers of couples are drafting informal non-disclosure agreements about how much they can share with others during or after the divorce, using Social Media such as Twitter or Facebook.
This can include agreeing not to post pictures of their new flames online or mentioning any aspect of their divorce settlement.
It makes real sense to approach the process of divorce like this. It is a difficult process at the best of times, and can be made far worse by the inappropriate use of Social Media.
Couples agreeing on a set of well defined boundaries should help them to focus on getting the best outcome from the divorce, leading to more agreement during the negotiation and legal stages, enabling them to move on with their lives.
