The emotional difficulties that accompany the divorce transition are common across the socioeconomic spectrum, but professionals and their spouses often face the end of their marriages with a common set of questions and concerns.
- Will I be able to keep my professional reputation intact and continue to meet the demands of my career while going through divorce?
- Will I be able to preserve the wealth I have accumulated?
- Will we have to sell our house or can one of us afford to keep living there?
- How do we establish and support two separate households and continue to meet our children’s needs?
Even individuals who felt financially secure become understandably apprehensive about how the future looks for themselves and their children.
