More than half of all recent marriages end in divorce, and one and a half million children are affected by divorce. For many teenagers, divorce is a part of daily life. The Divorce Resource Series offers information and advice for teens whose parents are divorcing or have gotten divorced. When a family separates, teens experience myriad emotions, including anger, fear, sadness, and guilt. The Divorce Resource Series provides useful and necessary information on matters such as family court, custody, finances, and blended families. It also gives teens the tools to cope with difficult emotions, to make positive decisions, and to build healthy relationships.

This book helps teens understand the impact of divorce on their family's financial situation. Many teens who have never had to worry about money will have to face new realities. Still others may be forced into poverty. The author helps readers understand important concepts associated with divorce, such as alimony, and how they will be affected. She also sensitively guides readers through the changes that may occur in their lives, such as working part-time and having to organize a budget.
