Financial Aspects of Divorce

There are many aspects to divorce, and the financial effect definitely has a major impact on the future of a family.

  • Two households are more expensive to maintain than one. Upon divorce, the same level of income usually exists, but there are now roughly double the expenses to be paid.
  • When there are significant debts involved in a divorce, the net marital estate may be significantly reduced or eliminated by debt, and many are forced to file bankruptcy.
  • Child support is usually a challenge for both the spouse paying it and the one receiving it, and it almost never makes a party whole or maintains a pre-divorce standard of living.
  • It is unrealistic to expect spousal support to allow a receiving spouse to maintain the same standard of living as before the divorce, unless the parties are extremely well off financially.
  • Health insurance is expensive and upon divorce, a former spouse will not be able to remain on the other spouse’s policy.
