Who We Serve - Our Financial Planning Clients

Pearson Financial Planning seeks to be the resource that all women can work with in order to be financially successful.  However, there are several areas in which we specialize.

Women going through a divorce need to know before the Divorcee Degree is signed, what their financial options are, what will life look like after the divorce and how to plan for the future.  

Pearson Financial Planning will work with the client and their attorney to get the best-possible financial outcome.  Divorce is never a win-win situation, but understanding the assets, liabilities, income and expenses help a client make a better informed decision.


The loss of a spouse or partner is one of the most painful experiences an individual can go through.  It is hard to image life without them.  Women need to know who they can turn to and trust in making financial decisions during a time that they really don't want to focus on those issues.  Decisions regarding where is future income coming from, how to retitle assets, what to do with Social Security are just a few issues the Pearson Financial Planning can assist a client with, when they are ready.
