Divorce Do's and Dont's

Find out what you should and shouldn't do during the divorce process.

The divorce rate nationwide has doubled over the past 25 years and experts expect that by 2030, more than 800,000 American couples will be divorcing each year. Legal separations and divorce can be difficult on nearly every aspect of your life so it is essential to plan accordingly.


The New York Times recently featured a piece that detailed the financial struggles that couples over age 40 often experience when divorcing. It seems that couples are caught in this catch 22: should you fight to keep items such as your salary, retirement plan, and pension or should you agree to settle sooner in order to limit your legal expense?


While every individual and couple has unique interests, one key factor that experts attribute to increased expenses is delaying financial decisions due to the emotional toll that divorce can take. To remedy this common problem, expert behaviorists and financial planners at Golden Gate University recommend hiring a financial planner when retaining your divorce attorney so that you are able to make important decisions in tandem.
