Navigating Divorce & Separation: Advice from Industry Experts – In Person

November 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm ACDT


In-Person: Seminar Event

Around 50,000 times a year in Australia, a couple will go through the wringer that is the divorce process.

It’s a tumultuous and often lonely experience. While we ride this emotional rollercoaster, we also need to stay on top of the many factors involved in these proceedings – and this is where many people come unstuck.

Parenting arrangements, financial matters, assets division, super, estate planning… there’s a lot that needs to be considered, all while we’re in a particularly vulnerable state.

This seminar has been designed to guide you through the experience, show you what to expect and what you need to consider, financially and legally.

Presented by – Brett Schatto

Brett is the founder and CEO of Pride Advice.

Born and bred in the Riverland, he moved to Adelaide after finishing school at 16 to study Naturopathy. Unsure of his career course and feeling guilty about his parents spending their hard-earned income on his tuition, accommodation and allowance, Brett decided to change direction.

In 2003 Brett established Pride Advice and through his guidance the company has won its licensee National Advice Practice of the Year four times in a row in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Brett brings to Pride a unique resilience to help people dealing with their own issues. He has personally watched, suffered and learnt from the deaths of family, friends and complete strangers – and shared his knowledge to make the lives of others easier.

Brett brings his many experiences to the workplace at Pride Advice, where he specialises in giving financial advice to people changing careers, preparing for retirement or at other key life stages. As a pro bono offering, Brett is also often called to discuss financial affairs with those entering palliative care or undergoing cancer treatment after being impacted by cancer.

Divorce and separation aren’t experiences you should have to go through alone. Lean on our expertise and let us ease some of the burden. Free tickets available now! Click to RSVP.
