2.3 - Your Family is Unique

Every family is unique, just like every person is unique. They have a specific set of circumstances, history, lifestyle and financial situation.

Every family is different and every family’s finances are different. 

  • Do they have a lot of assets?
  • Does one person pay all the bills?
  • What is their monthly cash flow?
  • What special expenses do they have?
  • Do they have savings?
  • Does one person make all the financial decisions?
  • Are their credit cards maxed out?
  • Do they maintain a family budget?

The economics of the family and the way people manage their finances affects the relationship before separation, the separation process, and the relationship after separation.
