How Life Insurance Works After Divorce
Protecting the kids
Perhaps the greatest change to accompany a divorce is the modification of parenting. After a divorce, many parents find themselves without the help of their ex and become single parents. These single parents need to continue to care and raise their children but in the absence of the financial help and support of their former partner. If this is you, you will need to come up with a plan to sort out your new financial situation, whether it be child support or alimony payments.
The best way to protect your children in a divorce is to secure some form of child support if you are the primary custodial parent. Child support is paid from the non-custodial parent to the custodial parent to help cover the cost of clothing, schooling, food, and daycare. Depending on the state you got divorced in, these payments could end once the child turns 18, or 21.
Getting divorced might mean finding a new place to live or having a lower income, either way, your children might feel like their lives are being upended.
