Stacy Francis, Francis Financial President and CEO, was a guest on the Dr. Sue & You show. She discusses how to plan for financial freedom before, during, and after divorce with host Dr. Sue Cornbluth and co-host Kate Butler.
Francis shares her opinion on the recent divorce of Bill and Melinda Gates and why it is getting so much attention in the media. Francis shares that the number of divorcing couples has skyrocketed since the pandemic and Francis Financial is fielding more inquiries for Divorce Financial Planning services than she’s seen in the past decade.
Francis also discusses the major challenges facing women’s financial stability. Without careful planning, the income decrease resulting from a divorce can decrease a person’s standard of living to a degree that is difficult to recover from. To ensure financial security, post-divorce budgets need to be sustainable and include savings for retirement.
Women often feel alone during a divorce, but resources are available for support. Francis suggests several resources women can pursue to start or strengthen their financial literacy, explains what a fee-only fiduciary financial advisor is, shares a success story from a client who re-entered the workforce after 13 years, and more.
