How to Be Financially Empowered After Divorce

Divorce can be a very challenging and stressful life situation. Emotions run high, and often many practical aspects of life are fundamentally changed, including financial matters. In this article, we will be discussing the experience of one member of the couple with little financial management experience who is suddenly needing to make investment decisions. This person could be of any gender, in a straight or LGBTQ marriage. Although we will refer to this individual as a woman because this is more often the case, anyone could fall into this position of being forced to make new decisions after a divorce.
