Men and Women in Transition during a divorce - The Planning Stage

Divorce is not something that is decided in one moment. Instead, there may be months or years of the decline of a marriage. When a divorce becomes inevitable, planning for the transition from married to single can help minimize some of the financial uncertainty and alleviate some stress.

There are many online sources to help plan pending the filing of a divorce. You can Google your specific state's laws pertaining to requirements for equitable distribution, alimony, child support and spousal support. You can also consult an attorney, financial advisor and/or tax expert when evaluating your financial position and to determine what you will need after the marriage has ended. Divorce is very unpleasant to say the least, but you can get through it with the proper planning and support.
