Navigating the Emotional & Financial Challenges of Divorce


It is no surprise that divorce is one of the most impactful life events that one can experience – it can be emotionally, financially, and sometimes even physically draining. So much so, that many compare the emotional experience of divorce to that of the death of a loved one. In this webinar, Stacy Francis, CFP®, CDFA™, CES™ and Carly Newhouse, LMSW will discuss the emotional and financial consequences of divorce and provide you with the tools you need to successfully navigate this difficult transition.

You will learn:

  • To identify and understand the complex roller coaster of emotions you might experience;

  • To seek out and use effective coping tools to ensure your self-care and that of your children;

  • To take key financial steps to best protect yourself and your family; and

  • To access the emotional and financial resources and support you need
