GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Divorce not only impacts an individual’s mental and emotional health, but it can take a large toll on their finances! Did you know that women going through a divorce often lose more than half of the household income they had when they were married? 

If you are filing for a divorce, then it’s important to protect yourself with these steps.

  • Create a list of financial priorities for yourself, your home and your children
  • Negotiate enough money to be able to provide for your family 
  • Reassess your retirement savings and rework your monthly budget after divorcing
