Divorce and Bankruptcy for the Stay at Home Mom
January 28, 2020
Getting Divorced While Filing for Bankruptcy, Stay at Home Moms and Divorce
Stay at home moms are the most vulnerable spouses in a divorce. Adding the possibility of bankruptcy on to the already stressful situation of divorce, the stay at home mom can find her future looking scary and uncertain. If you are a stay at home mom and are faced with divorce, you need to seek the expert guidance, counsel, and representation of a qualified bankruptcy attorney. Your future and your children’s future will ultimately depend upon the choices you make now.
A stay at home mom who has been financially dependent on her husband finds herself in a burdening situation during a divorce. In many cases, a judge will not force a woman to find gainful employment while her divorce is pending. However, this is not a guarantee. Under careful guidance, stay at home moms can begin looking into employment options. Children must be cared for and financially supported through a divorce and bankruptcy. Because the stay at home mom is generally the one providing care to the children, a judge will typically order temporary spousal support. This financial assistance will allow the mother to purchase groceries, clothing items, and the ability to take care of her own necessary expenses.
