Restarting your finances after divorce

After I divorced from my wife, I needed to start building my finances back up again. I have started this website to show people how you can save money and invest it sensibly after your divorce. You will not be able to get rich overnight, but by taking a long term view you should be able to get your finances in order and buy a new house or other things like that. I want my kids to know that I am doing OK financially and I want to make sure that I can keep giving them the lifestyle that they deserve when they are with me. I am sure you want the same things.
