Finance Tips for Women Going Through Divorce


While divorce can affect both parties financially, studies show that women tend to be hit harder afterward.

For this reason, if you are a woman, before you finalize your divorce you need to not only think about your current finances, but your future financial circumstances as well. Taking the time to review both future and current finances could save you from sliding down into an economic abyss.

One of the first things you will need to do is create a detailed account of your cost of living. Don't be afraid to list everything that you spend money on, even if it seems trivial. Anything from mortgage payments to children's birthday parties all need to be accounted for.

Even though you may ask for a certain amount of spousal support or child support, you need to plan ahead on how much that will actually cover in your daily life. In some cases, you may need to alter your spending habits radically as monthly support may not cover all of your expenses.
