In today's society separation and divorce have unfortunatelybecome common place.  I would be amazed if any of us either weren't divorced or knew of someone who was.  And that also includes de facto relationships that come to an end.  In recognising this Westpac Bank has dedicated a website to matters relating to separation and divorce.  You can cut and paste the link below to visit the site to find out more.

Splitting up after a long relationship rarely doesn't involve financial matters.  There are issues such as outstanding debts, shared investments and superannuation that all need to be considered.  Making sure you get good advice about your finances can be as important as getting good advice from your lawyer.

Please get in touch if you feel you need some help at what can be a difficult and stressful time.
