A divorce can substantially affect your financial situation. At Samra Wealth Management we will assist you in creating a dynamic financial plan as well as managing your assets and liabilities.

If you believe your marriage is ending, it is time to start preparing for the uneasy road ahead. Contact us today to learn more about what to expect.
Managing Wealth During Separation
If you are distancing yourself from your spouse's financial advisor, or you feel lost when looking through your investments, a Dynamic Financial Plan specifically catered to your scenario and needs will help guide you to your personal and financial goals. A Financial plan helps to answer the following:
Will your income see you through retirement or should you consider returning to work or moving to another city
Who will care for you should you become sick or incapacitated
Should you purchase a Life Insurance or Long-Term Care policy on your spouse.
What happens now.
After Your Divorce
After a divorce, it is important to review your estate plan, an often neglected part of financial planning. Your estate plan answers uncomfortable questions such as "What happens to my assets and my loved ones when I pass?" Things to consider:
Healthcare Proxy & Living Will - Is someone aware of your end of life decision, who will take care of your children and where will they live, who will take over your responsibilities as a caregiver to an elderly parent, and who have you entrusted with your family's financial affairs.
Beneficiary designations - Have you updated all of your accounts to reflect a new beneficiary.
Investments awarded - If you have been awarded a 401(k) plan, or retirement investments. Have you taken the right steps to ensure limited tax consequences.
