Financial Challenges Faced by Women During and After Divorce


Presented by


Stacy Francis, CFP®, CDFA®, CES™

The path to financial security for divorced women has many obstacles. Financial challenges as a result of divorce are common, as the income that supported one household is split and must support two.  Stacy Francis conducted a study on women who are going through or have gone through divorce. The results shed light on the emotional, legal, and financial difficulties that women face during and after divorce. She will present an overview of the findings along with effective tools that will help you better serve these women.



  • Insight into the challenges women face when going through divorce.
  • Understanding what women look for when choosing their team of professionals to support them through the divorce process.
  • Tools to better serve women & build a relationship from the very first meeting.
  • How to speak to women who do not understand or do not have the technical knowledge about their full financial picture.
