We can say with incredible certainty that going through a divorce will have a significant impact on your finances. That's because there is a considerable amount of research out there that tells us this is true. When it comes to children, we can say again, with relative certainty, that they will also be affected by the process, which is something we pointed out in a post last month. We can say this because of psychological studies and because of the professional opinions of experts in the field.
But what about your job? Does the divorce process have any effect on your performance at work? This is the question some researchers hope to answer with a new study that could offer invaluable insight into the all-encompassing effect divorce has on our daily lives. "What's surprising is that we really don't know how divorce affects people's work," explains one researcher. "It's only anecdotal at this point."
