Tamsin Caine and Fiona Sharp share their thoughts about using cashflow modelling as a powerful tool to help clients going through separation and divorce; a key area of focus for them both. Even if it’s seen as not useful for helping the client, it is useful to inform the Financial Planner and Lawyers.

Cashflow can help demonstrate to lawyers:
  • How a settlement might work for their clients.
  • How they might make small changes to improve things for their clients.
  • How they can help clients understand the offer being made to them.
  • How cashflow provides clarity and peace of mind.
  • How the graphical images may only be important to the half the couple. Usual the one without previous financial responsibility.
