Divorce is one of the most stressful transitions that individuals can go through. It’s a time of intense emotions as well as personal and family upheaval. As a result, many individuals facing divorce resist the need to examine, and ultimately adjust, their life and financial behaviors in order to ensure a successful future for themselves.
Join family law attorneys Kara Foster and Lydia Hsu in a discussion about financial and life adjustments that can be helpful, both before and after divorce. They will explore:
- Common financial misconceptions and missteps that spouses make when preparing for and navigating a divorce.
- The reality versus the myth of spousal support. How is spousal support calculated? How long can you really expect it to last?
- The biggest dilemma for many divorcing families: the family home. Is keeping it the best option or even possible? How can near-term decisions regarding the family home impact each spouse’s long-term financial outcome?
- For individuals considering divorce: What can you do now to prepare, both financially and emotionally?
After all, the goal of any divorce is a happier and more successful life outcome for each of the divorcing spouses.
