Exploring your best scenarios for Settlement

Women and Divorce

Generally speaking, the dependent spouse may suffer more financially during divorce.  Often, that is a woman and it becomes even more important to understand your finances and what they may look like in the future.  You want to minimize financial vulnerability in the long run.  Even if you are the primary wage earner,  having someone that is on your side of the table is important during this process. 

According to yourdivorcequestions.org the financial burden is greatest during the first year after divorce and varies depending on: (1) how much money the woman contributed to the family income before divorce, and (2) the ability and willingness of her former husband to make child support payments.

  • About one in five women fall into poverty as a result of divorce. (The 2014 poverty line for a family of three is less than $20,000 a year.)
  • About one in four women lose their health insurance for a period of time after divorce.
  • About one in three women who own a home and have children at home when they divorce lose their homes.
  • Three out of four divorced mothers with child-support orders don’t receive their full payment
