Divorce and Money

  Posted on June 23, 2015

Divorce and money are often discussed from an emotional point of view. If you are divorcing, you are likely scared you won't have enough after the divorce. If we think of the marital estate as a pie and we divide that pie in half, each spouse will have 50% of what they had when married. I realize attorneys tell female clients after divorce they should be kept in the style to which they have become accustomed during the marriage.

The sooner this fact is accepted by both spouses, the quicker the case will be settled.
