The biggest challenge in any divorce, next to the emotional fallout, tends to be finances.
From the fear of going down to one income to how the new financial dynamic will impact our children, it’s perfectly natural to worry about the financial implications of splitting up.
Those fears come from a place of uncertainty because divorce is such a significant change in so many aspects of our lives.
In divorce, especially when it comes to finances, it’s critical that we intentionally design an exit strategy instead of being emotionally reactive. If not, we risk making the process harder, more expensive, and more emotionally draining than it needs to be.
How do we start the process of financially planning for life after divorce? How can we address the financial fears that come with divorce? What can we do to navigate an ex who shows love by buying things for the kids?
In this episode, I’m joined by Certified Divorce Coach® and Divorce Financial Analyst®, Debra Doak who shares how to dump our money fears!
