In our culture, money has three distinct purposes: spending, saving, and sharing. I encourage you to work with your children individually to develop their own personal goals and positive experience around money. This is particularly important when you are going through a divorce as money pressures typically are felt by all members of the family, especially children during this time.
One of the most common misconceptions held by men and women when they divorce is that justice will prevail. They think the assets and income will be divided equally. Although no fault divorce exists, this is not the same as no-hassle divorce.
If you had a $2 billion dollar net worth that you built together over a 25 year marriage, would you go for the “do it yourself” divorce? When does this make sense?
