How does financial trauma present itself?

Is financial trauma a good thing or a bad thing?

Have you felt the impact of inflation over the last six months? Over the last twelve?

If so, how has it impacted you?

What habits or behaviors have you changed because of inflation?

A few weeks ago, Shawn attended FinCon 2022, an annual seminar to help "personal finance content creators and brands create better content, reach their audience, and make more money." This year FinCon was in Orlando, and we could not pass up the opportunity to get additional education around personal finance topics and make some great connections in the space. Next year, it will be in New Orleans and you can find more information at www.FinConExpo.com

One of the presentations Shawn attended described the different ways that individuals have felt the impact of inflation and how they are adjusting their budgets to battle inflation. For example:

  • The increase in the cost of essentials - groceries, gas & utilities
  • Shift in savings strategies
  • Reducing participation in extracurricular activities
  • Searching deals or discounts
  • Downloading money-saving apps, and
  • Avoiding big-ticket purchases

What are some of the things you're doing?

Things you tell your attorney are attorney-client privileged. As attorneys we cannot share confidential information with anyone. But what happens in bankruptcy court when financial information has to be disclosed to the trustee by one spouse, that was unknown by the other spouse?

In this week's episode, Shawn and George talk about stories relayed by different bankruptcy attorneys of when financial infidelity gets discovered, like:

  • When one spouse gave the other money to make mortgage payments, but the spouse used that money instead for something else.
  • When the engagement ring is fake but the receiving spouse didn't know that.
  • When one spouse has been paying child support unknown by the other spouse.
  • When one spouse has children by another relationship unknown by the other spouse.
  • When one spouse tries to file bankruptcy for both, without telling the other spouse.

These stories all arise from a Facebook post in a group comprised only of bankruptcy attorneys.  They are all true (or likely true) but are meant in the spirit of being funny. Still, we talk about these stories in terms of what they may mean to a couple trying to dig themselves out of debt and the consequences that may arise from "financial infidelity."
