Late Life Divorce

Divorce can be a devastating hit our finances let alone to every other area of our life including our relationships, health and careers. In this article Fairfax and Freelance Journalist Sylvia Pennington interviews Certified Financail Planner and founder of SMART Advice Peter Horsfield to get his thoughts and tips for those facing this daunting process of rebuilding ones life after divorce.
