Telling our children about the divorce was frightening and painful. We wanted to do anything we could to make it even a little less painful. Using the techniques in this guide made the conversation go as well as it could, and gave us additional tools for follow up discussions.

I’m thinking of divorce and I don’t want my spouse to know. How do I pay for services without him knowing?
First, get a credit card in your own name and have the statement mailed to a PO Box or your office. Perhaps you could have a friend or family member pay for services with the agreement of paying them back when everything is out in the open. Another option is to buy Visa gift cards at the grocery store or get cash back on purchases with your debit card and use those funds.
Can I keep the house?
The question should really be should you keep the house? One of the biggest mistakes made during divorce is keeping the family home when it can’t truly be afforded. Splitting your financial life is tough a divorce is an equation. In order to keep the home, you will likely need to buy your spouse out. This usually happens with trading cash, retirement or support payments. Homes are expensive and time consuming to maintain. Think about when a new roof is needed or living on that corner lot when it snows and the lawn needs to be mowed each week. Do you have the time and cash to handle the maintenance after you’ve given away your cash to keep the home? Financial planners often note this as the number one financial mistake people make in divorce.
How much child support or alimony will I receive or pay?
Child support is a mathematical formula based upon income and the number of overnights spent with each parent. Each state has a worksheet available for you to calculate. Each state also has guidelines for spousal support (alimony). This is not a hard and fast rule and is intended to help the spouse with lower earnings gain the skills needed to be able to eventually support themselves.
