How to make financial plans in case of divorce

When two people in Tennessee get married, they might not want to think about the possibility of divorce. However, as one expert pointed out, just as wearing a seat belt in a vehicle can be a wise precaution, financial planning that anticipates the possibility of divorce might also be a good protection.

Older couples should take financial care during divorce

Since 1993, the rate of divorce for American adults over the age of 50 has more than doubled, and statistics show that this trend is continuing to increase. For people in Tennessee and across the country, divorce can be a challenging time at any time of life, bringing with it a number of emotional, practical and financial changes. However, when people choose to divorce later in their lives, especially after a marriage of many years, the divorce process can be even more complex.

On the divorce process, and how you can improve your situation

If you are going through a divorce, there will be various waves of emotions that come over you at any given moment. There will be fear and anger, sadness and pain. There will also be hope. The divorce process doesn't have to be this arduous and difficult legal procedure that sees the two spouses yelling at each other incessantly every time they meet to discuss the topics at hand.

Let a QDRO help you save retirement money

The first few months of a new calendar year can be a time when many couples in Tennessee make the decision to end their marriages. If you are in this position in 2018, you will want to learn about the ways in which you may be able to protect yourself financially. While certainly there may be no way to completely avoid some financial losses, there is definitely one way that may help to minimize what could be lost.

Alimony is a big part of many divorces

When two spouses decide that it is time to end their marriage (and thus file for divorce), there will be many issues that they have to work out to ultimately conclude their divorce proceedings. Signing that divorce agreement will be freeing, but it takes some work to get there. Even after the agreement is signed, there will be post-divorce issues you have to work out.

Student loans and divorce

In divorce, the division of assets leads to many questions. While it's often easy to decide who gets the fine china and who keeps the sports memorabilia, there are challenges with shared property like houses, cars and pets. One often overlooked form of property--and one that impacts the budget significantly--is debt. As the cost of higher education rises, consumers have more student loan debt than ever before.

Is an uncontested divorce right for me?

If you realize that your marriage isn't working, you may want out quickly. When thinking about divorce proceedings, you may think about television shows that display contentious, drawn-out court battles over precious family heirlooms - but this isn't usually the case in real life. In fact, divorce can be relatively peaceful and pain-free if you and your spouse are willing to work together through the process.
