Divorce can cost you: Researchers estimate divorcing individuals would need more than a 30 percent increase in income, on average, to maintain the same standard of living they had prior to their divorce.

About one in five women fall into poverty as a result of divorce, since they tend to get custody of their children and earn less than men.(Source: Utah State University)

Avoid the family court litigation process and the numerous court appointees that will help decrease your financial stability but not necessarily help protect your children. Don't let them use your children as pawns for financial gain.

If folks would quit arguing about the separation of assets and share custody, they could pretty much shut the courts down.

This is also misleading. Studies have shown that after you add the child support transfer and any government services, none of which show on a tax return (which is what is used on these biased studies), the lower earner with the children is often better off than financially than the other parent. These studies also fail to recognize that women are the primary earner in 40.4% of American families nowadays.
