How does divorce affect lifestyle?

Preparing to withstand your divorce and rebuild afterward is a difficult process. Many individuals do not fully comprehend the scope of a divorce at first, and poor legal counsel may focus on saving some particular asset or right rather than looking at the larger picture of how the divorce may affect a client's overall lifestyle.
