Economic Strategies

The economic aspects of divorce can be confusing, intimidating and complex. Add to that the reality that in most households one person usually manages the finances and it is only natural for tension to develop in this area and sometimes even distrust can arise. Conflicts over finances are one of the top two reasons cited by divorced couples as a primary contributing factor to their divorce.
With such significance, an understanding of the current financial position, as well as the other important economic issues and their implications, is critical in forming a divorce economic strategy. This understanding is vital for both parties if they are to achieve an equitable resolution to the conflict. Regardless the economic situation in your marriage, a thorough review of all matters is important. This is true regardless the level of your means. But the importance of the economic issues particularly heightens when your family situation includes dependent children.
