Don't let family law issues stand in the way of a happy Thanksgiving

20297266_S.jpgYou likely need no reminder that Thanksgiving is this week. The holiday season that starts with Thanksgiving is supposed to be a happy time, and for the most part, it is.

Should you stay together for the kids? Not necessarily: Part II

11675918_S.jpgEarlier this week, we began a discussion about "staying together for the sake of the kids." Divorce is not an easy decision to make, particularly when you worry about how it will affect the children. This is an especially difficult decision in light of decades of studies showing the social, emotional, psychological and academic consequences that children can experience as a result of parental divorce.

Should you stay together for the kids? Not necessarily: Part I

22029377_S.jpgDivorce has become commonplace in the United States, but that doesn't mean it has become easy - either logistically or emotionally. In fact, many couples struggle with doubts about whether they are doing the right thing by getting divorced, especially if they have children.
