At least 40 percent of all new marriages today will end in divorce. The financial consequences of divorce can be traumatic. Many people who get divorced are left with little money, no income, and no credit rating. In some cases, if one partner looked after all the family's finances, the other partner is left unprepared and overwhelmed by the financial consequences of divorce. Divorce Dollars is a complete guide to financial planning, demonstrating in a step-by-step manner how to overcome the financial challenges of divorce and lead a financially healthy life. The book addresses everything from dividing the assets to retirement planning. By using examples of real people, Akeela Davis demonstrates how everyone can handle the financial challenges of divorce using careful planning and money smarts.
