We have previously discussed the fact that divorce may be an expensive process. Even if you and your spouse are able to achieve a relatively straightforward and inexpensive contested divorce process, the aftermath of the decision to divorce may be expensive.
Depending on the terms of your marital settlement agreement, you may or may not have retained the rights to much of your real property and personal belongings. As a result, you may need to purchase a new place to live, new appliances, new bedding, new dishes. Even items like light bulbs tend to add up when you are attempting to furnish a new home. As a result of your expensive divorce, you may find yourself overwhelmed by credit card debt.
