Whether you ask a neighbor who is divorced or a financial expert who specializes in this area, they will tell you one thing for certain: Nothing turns your financial life upside down quite like a divorce. Even those who live very modestly, with little to no sizable assets, can expect some level of financial upheaval. You may be searching for a new place to call home, or struggling to find a way to afford the home you currently live in, all while doing so without your ex’s financial help. All too often, divorcees see a major portion of their savings and income go right out the door once the divorce is underway, as settlements take root and assets are divided.
Add any debts that you have accumulated during – or since the end of – the marriage, and suddenly your financial life might appear to be in shambles. As grim as this can seem, there is always hope for a better, brighter financial future, especially when we educate ourselves and are open and willing to make changes moving forward.
Whatever your financial circumstances are as you divorce, there are many practical ways to remain living within your means and to place yourself in a position where you can save and reshape your economic life. Financial experts and divorce survivors alike emphasize that the key is to be patient with yourself. Allow for the emotional setbacks that come with divorce — rebuilding your financial standing will take time and you may make some mistakes along the way. Try the following tips to help cut back on your post-divorce expenses and make saving a priority:
