ECONOMIC UNREST AND DIVORCE
Consumer confidence ebbs and flows as the markets churn in response to Washington Politics. Divorce Attorneys, like any other professional service providers, notice the ebb and flow of caseload as clients (customers) weigh their options concerning the allocation of precious family resources between and among competing needs and wants.
But, the pressure of financial stress can exacerbate already advanced marital dysfunction, and can add to the stress, tension and overall unhealthy environment that often prevails just prior to initiating an action for divorce.
Budgeting for a divorce is one possible solution to this problem. By placing some funds aside on a monthly basis, like paying any other bill, a client can build up a retainer payment so that the untenable family situation may be addressed and a dissolution of the marriage obtained. Such solutions fall under the heading of "Divorce Planning" and is an often overlooked measure in these uncertain times.
