Even if your divorce is a relatively amicable one, couples (and their families) are often caught in a maelstrom of emotions at a time when they are having to make considerable changes to their lives. But what other aspects of life are often impacted by divorce – beyond those where decisions are forced due to the legal and financial discussions lots of couples have?

Huw Williams, Private Banker at Nedbank Private Wealth, is joined by a panel of advisers who each have considerable experience in supporting one ‘side’, or sometimes both parties, during the divorce process. These are:

  • Sarah Wadham – founder of Aphrodite Angels, a network of professionals providing services to divorcées
  • Vivienne Goldstein – a certified neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) trainer and accredited mediator
  • Ian Smith – founder of Shield Associates, a comprehensive and discreet security consultancy

Our experts were brought together by Aphrodite Angels, which has a philosophy that sets out it is extremely important for people going through these major life changes to use advisors who treat them with courtesy and respect, and guide them through the major legal and financial challenges, with professionalism and understanding.

Our 30 minute discussion took place on 11 May, but can be watched on demand, to flag the scope of the conversations people should be having if they are going through, or have recently finalised, a divorce.

This webinar is the second of three webinars in our series focusing on divorce.  You can catch up on our first webinar, Managing your finances around a divorce, on demand on this website. The third and final webinar was on 3 June and can be watched here: Divorce, pre-nups and pandemics – recent legal changes and those coming soon.

Note: since the webinar was recorded, the date for the ‘no fault’ divorce law coming into effect has been moved to 6 April 2022.
