Getting a divorce

Although the divorce rate seems to be going down in the United States, it is still projected that many marriages will end in divorce.1 We understand that divorce can be an overwhelming and emotionally difficult transition. But this is not the time to neglect your financial house. A financial professional can help ensure you maintain a sound financial footing. Get organized, bring the paperwork, and we'll work with you to create an investment strategy that can help meet your new goals. 

Widowed

Losing a husband or wife is a devastating experience that many of us will have to face.  About 40 percent of women and 13 percent of men who are 65 and older are widowed, according to latest census figures.The loss of a spouse is emotionally devastating. You spent a segment of your life sharing memories, plans, goals, and accomplishments together.

In the wake of their death, your emotions bounce between sadness, anger, loneliness, and worry. Maybe you believed you would grow older together—travelling, spending time with grandchildren and friends, and creating new adventures. Maybe you were looking forward to a more quiet time to get to know each other better after handling the responsibilities of building a home and raising a family.

Now you’re forced to move on, day by day, without the person who was your partner.

Here at Living Legacy Financial Services, we can help you navigate your new life. Even if you've never been to a financial counselor before, this is exactly the time you need to make that appointment. We've helped many recently widowed people map out a plan for their future. 

Call or email us today for an appointment. We're here to help.
