Are you having a tough time making ends meet now that you're single? Going through a divorce, regardless of which party instituted it, is a difficult thing for any person to go through. There are so many adjustments and your whole lifestyle has dramatically changed. Not only has your living situation changed, but if you are like a majority of those going through a divorce, your financial situation has changed as well. Regardless of whether you receive a lump-sum alimony payment, monthly alimony payments, and/or child support payments, your income level has been drastically reduced. No payment received will ever compensate for the loss of that other salary.
Despite these financial changes, you are expected to maintain the lifestyle you had with your mate. You will still have a rent or mortgage payment, still have utility bills, a car payment, insurance payments, child care expenses, and all those bills you paid as a couple. How does one survive?
