Our Family Law Partner Karen Connolly has been working collaboratively with Kith & Kin Financial Wellbeing to provide information sessions focused on financial matters tailored specifically to support women.

Kith & Kin Financial Wellbeing is a social enterprise established in 2015 which is aimed at making financial advice and support accessible.  With the support of the Public Health Agency and Libraries NI, the organisation has been offering free webinars entitled of ‘Women & Money’, providing financial information around areas such as motherhood, menopause, pension inequality and returning to work.  Karen has contributed to the sessions outlining the various rights and entitlements women can have on divorce and separation.

Karen comments:-

“I was delighted to to be asked by Sean Bruen of Kith & Kin Financial Wellbeing to be involved in the information webinars surround women and their finances, and specifically providing information on how the divorce process works here in Northern Ireland and a women’s rights and entitlements in respect of finances and assets under divorce law.  Navigating the complexities of the divorce process can be daunting, and many women can find the process overwhelming.  It was therefore great to have an opportunity to provide some information to dispel any myths surrounding who is entitled to what upon divorce and give any women contemplating the divorce process some confidence to take that first step.”
