Stay-at-home parents often experience financial hardships post divorce

The lives of individuals who divorce are impacted in a number of ways. While many of these changes are positive, some may also prove to be challenging. In the wake of a divorce, a divorcee may enjoy their new freedom and independence but many struggle financially. This is often especially true in cases where a divorced mother or father acted as a full-time caregiver to a couple's child or children.

Even in cases where spouses both agreed divorce was the best option and the split was relatively amicable, things can quickly sour when the courts get involved. Suddenly, the individual with whom an individual previously shared everything is unwilling to share anything. When the divorce process becomes contentious, the wounds suffered in divorce court battles often remain fresh for years and, in some cases, may never completely heal.
