Divorce is mired in mythology. Here are 5 myths about money and divorce — debunked.
Posted by: Sue Atkins
I am currently ready to launch my latest conversational cards & videos in my ‘Divorce Step by Step‘ series in January to help families address the legal, financial and emotional roller coaster of transition and change during a divorce.
When it comes to the money side of splitting up, things are especially confusing. For instance, while there might be plenty of mistakes to avoid post-split, some financial blunders depend on the quality of the decisions you make now while you are still married.
I read with interest this article in Time. around some of the myths associated with divorce.
Every situation is unique and that’s why I recommend that you take professional advice despite being worried about money at the moment.
Most of the women I work with through this enormously stressful period in their lives are transfixed in fear & overwhelmed by all the major and minor decisions that they have to start making alone, so my advice is to take a step back and start to unpick the areas one small step at a time.
Fact: Women initiative divorce more often but end up more financially devastated than men.
Make sure that you take your time in making major decisions and get the advice & support you need, as the decisions you make today will impact your life, and the lives of your children long term so it’s wise to get it right.
I run a 6 week 1-2-1 divorce coaching programme to help you gain clarity, direction & confidence as well as championing, believing and supporting you through this challenging time of change.
