– Divorce is not just a slip of paper that legally recognizes you as single. It involves many other ancillary issues, topics, and changes that need to be addressed and made.
– Financial abuse occurs when a spouse is relegated to the position of a child and has no control, knowledge, or agency over their finances. This results in a paternalistic and punitive financial relationship. Often, the victim is given a paltry sum of money as an allowance that is altered if they upset their spouse.
– In every divorce case, there is a mandatory disclosure of all financial information. Therefore, if there is a case of financial abuse, attorneys can legally force uncooperative parties to share their financial information by serving them a subpoena.
– Divorce is often a form of rebirth for women; they can live entirely new lives and become new people when they find the courage to claim the happiness they are entitled to.
