Breaking up is hard to do...
Defaulting on your mortgage is harder
The current separation and divorce trend leaves many people facing complicated emotional and financial issues. The need to start again isn't confined to married people either, but also applies to those in de facto and long term relationships.
When you divorce, taking the first financial steps in a new direction isn't as simple as finding a new place to buy or rent. There is also a need to review joint investments, accounts, superannuation funds, personal and health insurance, and possibly tax arrangements.
Where there are children involved in separation and divorce, child maintenance may need to be sorted through in the early days, too. In some circumstances, it may entitle one or both partners to temporary or long-term Centrelink parenting benefits.
