TIP: Find a financial advisor with experience working with divorced clients
Be sure to find a financial professional with expertise and experience working with people who are divorced. The financial needs of divorced people are different from those of a married couple, and you will be best served by an advisor who understands and appreciates those differences, and knows how to invest on their behalf.
Retirement planning is always important, but it can be even more important and time-sensitive after a divorce. Take care of yourself, your future, and be sure to “put your own oxygen mask on first” before too much else happens.
