5 Surprises Women May Face During Divorce
Divorce can be an extremely difficult and long process. There are lots of topics to cover and each one takes time. What often ends up happening is that women go into a divorce expecting their personal life to remain the same. However, that is simply not the case. There are several different things that will change in a woman’s life, all of which will be covered in this article.
Not Knowing The Amount of Marital Debt
Many married couples don’t have joint bank accounts. Or in other cases, only one partner handles the finances, meaning the other partner is unaware of the about of debt building up. This can cause a lot of problems during a divorce. This is because both parties are responsible for the debt during a divorce.
Not Preparing To Return To The Workforce
Many women expect that their personal life of being a stay at home mother will remain exactly the same. This is not the case. In many divorce settlements, the women will still be expected to bring in income, especially if you don’t have a child. This can be very frustrating because if a stay at home mother is required to get a job to continue to support herself, it may be more difficult, considering she has been out of the work force for a while.
Thinking Child Support Is Going To Pay More Than It Will
Often times, mothers expect child support to cover a lot more than it actually does. This is also not the case, which is why many mothers find themselves working at a job in order to properly support their children.
Assuming You Can Stay In Your Home
In some cases, the house will be sold. But most of the times, one of the partners will be granted the house in their name. The stereotype in divorce is that women get a hold of every asset, but this is not realistic to assume. There are just as many cases where the husband is rewarded the house in the divorce.
The Cost Of Divorce
The cost of divorce isn’t cheap, which ends up surprising both the husband and wife. This can often times stop divorce from happening, which results in a simple separation.
