Perhaps you can consider some financial planning.
Managing household expenses can be complicated. Apart from spending wisely, you may struggle to save. With financial education, you can learn how best to optimize the funds at your disposal.
Planning for a Family

Wouldn’t you like to buy that designer handbag you saw the other day at the mall? Or those designer shoes? Some financial planning may help you to buy those luxury goods without facing the embarrassment of asking your spouse or parents.
Planning for Retirement
Saving for retirement can be a stressful task but one which should be planned proactively. Unfortunately, historically women tend to earn less and thus are likely to enter retirement with fewer resources than men. If you start investing early, due to the power of compounding, you should be able to accumulate the necessary funds for retirement.
Today, many women are beneficiaries to an inheritance from their parents and husbands. To be able to optimize the return on these assets, it’s important to understand your options.

Not only is your life in turmoil, but also your finances are out of order. When you are going through a divorce, lack of specialized financial expertise can lead to mistakes resulting in long-lasting, devastating consequences.
