The article discusses strategies that financial planners should use to ensure that their older female clients who are going through a divorce do not end up in poverty. Financial planners should place emphasis on securing career assets, which replenish every year, over property, which is only divided once. Additionally, financial planners should pay special attention to divorcing women who don't work, and ensure that the property they are receiving can produce income and won't have tax consequences.
