Take financial control over your divorce

When going through a divorce, it's important to take control of your own financial situation in order to make sure to get a fair shake out of the divorce settlement. After all, you don't want to be the person walking away from the divorce with no real assets.

Men more likely to gain weight after a divorce

Deciding to get a divorce can mean some real changes. Time with the children may be split between both parents, and one or both spouses may end up living in a new home. However, aside from these common examples that many think of when talking about divorce, it turns out that for men divorce could also mean weight gain.

More parents are having children out of wedlock

More and more couples are choosing cohabitation over marriage, which is resulting in a number of couples also having children out of wedlock.

Jimmy King faces felony charge for owing child support

Missouri father denies accusations, claims he has shared custody

Many couples separate after seven years, divorce by eighth year

While many couples may decide to split after just a few years into their marriage, and others might file for divorce after 25 years of marriage, recent numbers from the U.S. Census determined that the median for first time marriages to end is at eight years, with the initial separation happening after seven years.
