Financial Issues for Women During Divorce

As more women enter the workforce and take on professional careers and occupations, they become more vulnerable than ever before to financial pressure during divorce. In an increasing number of couples, the woman earns more than the man, and this earning power places the woman under scrutiny when determining child support and spousal support.

When the mother is awarded primary physical custody of the child, she usually bears the cost of childcare. It is important that divorce lawyers factor daycare expenses into a final child support agreement.

Child Custody Issues for Professional Women

Traditionally, courts awarded primary custody to mothers and visitation to fathers every other weekend. In some cases, this may still be the best option for professional women. However, in an increasing number of cases, professional women are finding it difficult to negotiate child custody and visitation with their husbands.

In some families with working mothers, the father has pitched in with child-rearing and has a close relationship with his children that he does not want to lose with an overly restrictive visitation schedule. In other families, the mother is the primary breadwinner but still does the lion's share of household and family caregiving.
