Insurance Description
FIELD OF THE INVENTION

[0001] This invention comprises a method of doing business involving providing divorce insurance to individuals who may become parties of a divorce ("dissolution" in some states) to protect them from adverse financial consequences as the result of a divorce and provide them with a predetermined cash benefit claimed upon the presentation of a legally filed and finalized divorce decree together with policy documentation to the insurer.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0002] No one gets married with the intention of getting divorced. However, no one plans on getting sick or injured either, yet there is accident and health insurance to provide financial assistance for those events.

[0003] America's divorce rate is nearly 50%, the highest rate among all nations of the world. Which means that men in the United States are as likely to get divorced as be diagnosed with Cancer yet no insurance covers divorce.

[0004] Insurance is provided for nearly every circumstantial risk except divorce. Yet divorce can be more financially devastating than serious illness or accident.

[0005] Most divorces happen between year 5 and year 10 of a marriage.

[0006] The average length of divorce proceedings is approximately 1 year. This does not include any child custody or property settlements, which often take several years.

[0007] The average cost of a divorce is $16,700.

[0008] Women file for divorce more than 3 times as often men. Financial independence has a direct bearing on whether a woman can or will initiate divorce proceedings. Women who are dependent on their spouse for their financial well-being are far less likely to initiate divorce proceedings even in the worse domestic scenarios unless they have a support net of family or friends that will support them financially in their time of need after their divorce.

[0009] The average age at first divorce is between 33-35.

[0010] 22% of all divorces occur within the first 3 years.

[0011] 38% of all divorces occur within the first 5 years.

[0012] 65% of all divorces occur within 10 years.

[0013] 90% of all divorces occur within 20 years.

[0014] There are 2.5 million people divorced in the U.S. each year.

[0015] The census bureaus project that 40-60% of second marriages will end in a second divorce.

[0016] On the average, it takes divorced women about 6-18 months to get awarded any kind of support (child or spousal). More than 30% never get any money that is due them.

[0017] Divorce is widely accepted by experts as the single greatest predictor of poverty for women and children. Many will suffer the financial impact of the divorce for many years. In fact, many divorces are in part, the result of out of control financial obligations.

[0018] Lack of financial support and limited financial resources for women and children, especially in the first years after the divorce is a major factor contributing to poverty.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0019] Divorce Insurance is developed to provide financial support that anyone might need during the period immediately divorce.

[0020] Divorce Insurance is designed to be easily accessible and applications will be submitted via the internet with no underwriting.

[0021] Divorce Insurance will be sold in "units" equal to specific dollar amounts.
