Divorce And Financial Issues

Divorce brings with it a host of unplanned financial ramifications. Income that used to support one household must now support two. All of a family's possessions, assets and debts must be divided. In fact, studies indicate people who get divorced need a 30 percent increase in income to maintain their pre-separation standard of living.

And although men experience a decline in their standard of living after a divorce, the financial impact on women and children is especially grim. Experts suggest one out of five women will fall into poverty due to a divorce. Approximately one in three women who own a home and have children at home when they divorce will lose their homes. And three out of four divorced mothers do not receive the full amount of child support they are due.
