Gambling addiction and divorce

On Behalf of | May 17, 2019 | Divorce, Firm News |

Couples make the decision to end their marriage for countless reasons, but the divorce process can be particularly challenging for some people. Those experiencing financial problems may be especially worried about how their divorce will impact their finances, and some people may have other financial concerns outside of their divorce. For example, someone who has a gambling problem may have difficulty paying child support or alimony, and in some cases a gambling problem may even be responsible for the failure of a marriage. Whether you struggle with gambling or you decided to break up with your former partner because of their gambling habit, it is important to be aware of these issues during and after your divorce.

People who are buried in debt because of gambling may wonder how their debts will be affected by their divorce, and some people who struggle with a gambling addiction may find that their habit becomes even more unmanageable due to divorce-related stress. Some people may even develop a gambling problem in the wake of their divorce. Regardless of your circumstances, it is important to watch out for these issues if you or your ex struggle with gambling.

The financial impact of divorce can be tough for anyone, but it can be particularly upsetting for those who are addicted to gambling. From slot machines to sports betting and card games, it is essential to be mindful of your behavior during and after your divorce and prepare for some of the issues that may lie ahead.
