The Ultimate Divorce Checklist (That You'll Hopefully Never Need‪)‬ Everyone's Talkin' Money

    • Relationships

You know the famous stat that half of all marriages end in divorce? That stat is still true for first marriages, while second and third marriages fail at higher rates. According to statistics from a Forbes article, the average length of a marriage before divorce is eight years. As someone who has been through a divorce, I can tell you it is both emotionally and financially devastating. That’s an understatement. There’s a lot I wish I would’ve known in the process, which is why our guest, Jennifer Lee, founder of Modern-Wealth and a pro at helping people through transitions like divorce, is joining us to give you the ultimate divorce checklist if you find yourself going through a divorce.
In this episode, you'll learn:

What questions do you need to ask your attorney

How to deal with the emotional side of divorce

Financial strategies you need about everything from who gets the house to how to keep your money separate
