Stay-at-home parents have a lot of duties to handle around the house. Not only are they usually the ones who cook and clean, but they also have to try to raise well-adjusted children. This puts a lot of pressure on them. While their marriage is going well, this can be a dream way of life for them. If the marriage begins to crumble, however, the stay-at-home parent might be at a serious financial disadvantage.
They might face the possibility of being unable to support themselves if they are divorcing. This is a stark realization for a person who dedicated their entire life to making the home a comfortable place and raising the children. We know that you probably never thought you would be in this position. We are here to help you with this matter so that you are able to try to start your new life without having to worry too much about money.
One option in these cases is seeking alimony. You can do this by working out a deal with your ex that includes it or you can ask the court to order it. There are many factors that go into the decision about whether you are going to receive it or not. We need to look into the situation and determine what factors we can use to help boost your chance of receiving it.
On top of the alimony issue, we can also try to boost your financial situation through the property division process. The goal that we have at this point is to try to put you in the most financially stable position we can through our negotiations over the divorce settlement.
