With divorce comes huge financial changes for both parties. If you have children, you are now maintaining two households. If you do not, you must adapt to living on one income and buying your own place, paying your own utilities and, if you have been out of the workforce, finding a job. The key to staying financially stable during and after your divorce is to plan and be ready for anything.
If you are going through the end of a marriage, nearly every aspect of your life undergoes some kind of change; even your professional status can be affected. It might not change your relationship with individuals at work, but both the expense and division of assets leads many professionals to revise their future plans and redirect their energies toward rebuilding. Nowhere is this truer than when a retirement account has been affected.
