According to recent statistics from the National Center for Health, the U.S. divorce rate is currently estimated at 47.9 percent.  Based on legal expenses, child support, and travel for parental visits to non-custodial parents, the financial impact of divorce is estimated at $11.1 billion dollars annually. Another $75.1 billion per year is estimated for post-divorce therapy, individual and family counseling, life coaching, and other mental health related therapies.  While the circumstances associated with divorce are unique for every couple, divorce is not only one of the most difficult events that an individual and a family can experience on an emotional basis, the costs associated with the aftermath of the divorce process can be devastating.
