5 Ways to Financially Prepare for a Divorce in Infidelity
According to USA Divorce Rate Statistics
20% of marriages end in the first 5 years. 32% end in the first 10 years. 48% of spouses who married before the age of 18 are likely to divorce within 10 years. 25% of spouses over 25 years of age get divorced within 10 years.
Needless to say in most events, divorce leaves both spouse penny less. The key to this is that both couples were not prepared for divorce and did not do their financial preparation work prior to the divorce.
Ok, I am going to dive straight into the topic on 5 Ways to Financially Prepare for a Divorce.
1) Get Solid Evidence of Infidelity that caused the divorce. Evidence, Evidence, Evidence. This is very very important to prepare for the divorce. This could be your ace card in getting your way. Be very, very patient and do the homework. Chances are if you smell a rat then there probably is one.
The first thing to gather evidence of Infidelity is divorce.
Spy Software. Get spy software called Win-Spy from www.win-spy.com. This could be the best first alternative. Since it only costs $49 a Year and you can monitor both the cell/mobile phone and PC or Remote PC. You can monitor 10 remote pc and 5 mobile phones for only $49 a year. This is the cheapest first choice in evidence gathering.
Win-Spy comes with a Keylogger and Chrome Password Extractor. Chrome Password Extractor will extract all stored usernames/passwords from Chrome Browser. This tool will allow you to access all your spouse’s emails and chats etc. This tool alone will allow you a lot of access to the evidence you need.

Private investigator. Get a private investigator or do it yourself. You could very easily follow your spouse via GPS live location and take pictures as evidence. Private Investigators can be very costly. And not worth the money if you only have a hunch of Infidelity. This could run to thousands of dollars. This is only practical only if your hunch was right or after reviewing your spouse’s mobile data or pc data for evidence.
2) What is Contested and Uncontested Divorce
Uncontested divorce – the parties agree on all the major issues
Contested divorce – the parties do not agree on major issues and will rely on the court to determine the outcome
In any case, if you have good evidence, then it does not matter if it is an Uncontested divorce or a Contested divorce. Either your spouse will agree with you, or the courts will most likely favor your case.
In an Infidelity case, courts will in most events favor you the person who was cheated on.
Child Custody. This could probably/easily allow you to win child custody. Of course, if you have child custody.
a) You can easily claim Child Support.
b) Claim your children as dependents on your Income Tax statement and get a bigger refund check.
Property. This could also easily allow you to get a positive outcome on the property (house and car) you hold jointly. Finding a new place and paying rentals as a divorcee is no fun these days.3) Spouse Bank Records. This is very, very important – keep records of your spouse’s bank records. This will show what they are spending on their Infidelity (hotels, rooms, trips, dining). This could solidify your case on what you will receive. You could argue on what you are receiving is much less than what the spouse was paying for the affair.

4) Open Your Own Bank Account. Open a New Bank Account. And get your Credit Cards. You want to avoid being taken by shock when your spouse moves out and leaves you out to dry. Move some money to your bank account via cash for a rainy day.
5) Record your Emotional Distress and ‘SUE’ both parties for Infidelity. Different states have different laws. But in general, you can sue the parties involved in Infidelity leading to your divorce. This is where the spouse’s bank statement comes into play and is very important. To prove your distress. PS see articles below:
