Getting a Nice Tax Refund? Now You Can Get that Divorce You‘ve Been Wanting


If divorce is something you’ve been mulling for some time, but you couldn’t figure out how you’d be able to pay the legal fees, a tax refund may be just what the doctor ordered.  Across the nation, couples are finding that splitting up is worth every penny of the tax refund coming from Uncle Sam.

How Expensive Will it Be? 

Because every divorce is unique, the intricacy of your circumstances, and your ability to politely negotiate the terms with your soon-to-be ex will play heavily into how much money a divorce will end up costing you. Chaotic or complex situations with a lot of disagreement over who-gets-what can run into the tens of thousands of dollars, while amicable splits that don’t involve a lot of property or children will cost a tiny fraction of that amount.

You Hate to Spend the Money… 

Would you rather spend your refund on a new vehicle or a trip to Timbuktu? Does it cause you indigestion to think of parting with your hard-earned cash for something with no tangible object in your hands at the end of the day? Well, if you know you are in a fractured or loveless relationship, maybe it’s time to make a move: take considered and deliberate action. Now’s the time to sit down and understand that it’s possible to justify the decision:

  • View your refund as a tool. Its purpose is to get you the things you need—and what do you need right now more than you need a divorce?
  • Understand that sometimes people in terrible marriages wind up spending lots of money—on booze or other escapes– trying to forget their unhappiness. Why not just spend it on getting what you really want?
  • The alternative—staying married– is unfair to everyone involved. So get out.
  • You only live once. Do you want to spend your life in a space of such unhappiness?
  • The future is your oyster. Take the dive. You may find an amazing new reality.

What’s Next? 

  • Hire a straight-shooting divorce attorney to protect your interests. You want someone who will be hard-hitting, but principled.
  • Have the conversation: admit to your spouse how you’re feeling and what you want to do. Be gentle, courteous, and candid.
  • Have your attorney file the paperwork.
  • Negotiations begin. Whether it’s a simple process or requires mediation to work out the more sensitive issues, keep your cool. If it becomes a shameless battle, it will stretch out over months or years, and cost a bundle of money. Your goal is an amicable settlement.
  • Go to court, where the judge will determine how things unfold.
  • Start anew.
