Financial challenges for women after divorce

California residents whose marriages are ending may have a lower standard of living after the divorce. Often, this happens to women because they still make less than men do at around 82 cents to the dollar. The gap is even greater in certain fields or with other variables. There are a number of reasons for this including the likelihood that caregiving duties will fall to women, and this means they may work part time, have less chance for career advancement and save less money.

The family home in a divorce

California residents who are getting a divorce may want to refinance the family home in order to keep it or get a new mortgage. They should think about a number of financial factors including whether it is possible to buy out the other spouse, whether alimony and child support are being paid or received, and whether there is enough money for a down payment.
