Your marriage is ending and the same fears keep rushing through your head:
- The house: “Will I have enough money to keep it?”
- The bills: “How will I be able to pay them?”
- Health insurance: “Will I be able to get coverage?”
- Retirement: “Will there be any money left to save for the future?”
In divorce, all of these fears are normal and have something in common:
When it comes to money and divorce, there's one issue that's more emotional, controversial and challenging for spouses to resolve than any other.
Whether you call it alimony or divorce maintenance, coming to agreement on a matter that will require an ex-husband or wife to give money to the other ex-spouse to support their future lifestyle after the marriage is challenging, to say the least.
