The many ways social media can make your family law dispute worse

21690453_S.jpgWe have previously written that social media and family law disputes are often a dangerous combination. Whether going through a divorce, child custody or spousal support dispute, discussing details on Facebook or other social media platforms will rarely, if ever, work in your favor.

The importance of picking your battles with a co-parent

18120867_S.jpgDivorced co-parents don't always see eye-to-eye on the appropriate ways to raise their children. In fact, that may be an understatement. There have been numerous examples of parents taking one another to court over differences in religious beliefs and even whether the child is allowed to get his or her ears pierced.

Factors for older couples to consider when getting divorced

37230863_S.jpgThe divorce rate among older couples in the United States continues to be higher than other age groups. Older couples getting divorced is becoming more common and socially accepted so it is not surprise that the divorce rate for individuals age 50 and older doubled during the last 30 years.

When it comes to child custody legislation, caution is crucial

31020940_S.jpgOver the past decade or so, there has been increasing public debate about gender bias in child custody decisions. The commonly held belief is that courts too often favor giving custody to mothers, often to the detriment of both children and fathers who want to stay actively involved in their children's lives.

The link between divorce and a bad credit score

It is generally understood that divorce can be expensive. But long after the divorce has been finalized, many people are horrified to discover that their credit score has taken a dive. While this problem is certainly associated with divorce, it is not typically caused by divorce costs themselves.

Choosing legal separation over divorce for insurance reasons

19421036_S.jpgOur posts last week focused on legal separation as an alternative or precursor to divorce. While many couples use separation as a way to gain breathing room and figure out if divorce is necessary, we mentioned that some people opt for legal separation because divorce is not an option.

Legal separation can bring relationship clarity & focus: Part I

34842907_S.jpgIt often takes a long time for unhappy couples to decide that divorce is both necessary and mutually desired. Long before filing for divorce, a couple may go through various stages of separation - most of them emotional in nature. During these "cooling off" periods, some couples decide that they want to try reconciliation while others confirm that divorce is right move.

Thinking about a prenup? Find the right way to negotiate

9860947_S.jpgThe words "prenuptial agreement" have countless connotations -- and not all of them good. Some people think that creating a prenup means your marriage won't last. Others think they are reserved for the wealthiest people. Others say it turns your marriage into a business contract.

How your divorce may affect the future of your small business

35601292_S.jpgMany Americans who start their own business are intensely focused on making it a success. There is so much work and sacrifice in those first shaky years that the business owner may need to depend on the physical and financial help of his or her spouse. And, of course, some couples choose to start a business together from the very beginning.
