Some financial upsides common in the wake of divorce

On Behalf of | May 3, 2021 | Family Law |

When a divorce commentator spotlights “one of the main sources of marital strife,” what catalyst do you think he might be referencing?

Candidly, there is no dearth of contenders. Factors driving marriage discontent are many and varied, especially when they emerge during the divorce process. Some splitting exes manage to work their way through key issues in fairly civil fashion and with a damper on discord and tension.

But that is not always the case. One authoritative New York family law source duly highlights a lengthy list of matters that ratchet up stress levels for impending exes. Here is a partial bullet list of possibilities:

  • Kid-centric issues, ranging from custody and visitation to parenting plans and child support
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Parental relocation
  • Modifications to decrees and court orders

And there is this this additional concern too in legions of decouplings, as cited by the above source: “division of marital property, including multiple properties, investments or businesses.”

Indeed, an equitable division of wealth and marital assets in divorce is often a paramount concern for high numbers of soon-to-be former partners. A recent national article on divorce pressures duly notes that, “More than a third of partnered or wedded couples say money causes the most stress in their relationships.”

Understandably, getting fair treatment and an equitable asset-tied result in the divorce process is routinely a top-tier focus for splitting partners. That can sometimes make for a challenging task, although the above media piece underscores that post-divorce financial life often spawns “silver linings” for individuals seeking a fresh start.
