The process of getting divorced can be extremely stressful and emotional. People can be dealing with feelings of betrayal, anger, guilt, sadness and fear for what the future will look like. Add to all this the stress of dealing with financial problems, and it can all prove to be quite overwhelming.
Unfortunately, debt and divorce often go hand-in-hand. Unmanageable debt can be the factor that puts such incredible strain on a marriage that it cannot last; people who have gotten divorced may find that moving on financially afterward can prove to be enormously challenging and end up creating debt on their own; it can also be quite expensive to actually get divorced, which can only add to existing or potential financial problems. If you are in any of these situations, there are a few things you should understand.
