Pregnant and divorcing? What you need to know

14202797_S.jpgBeing pregnant can be an incredibly difficult time in a woman's life, between the physical discomfort, the emotional peaks and valleys and the constant changes that come with such a dynamic event. Fathers-to-be also face some challenges when it comes to being supportive and planning for the future.

It's not your parent's divorce

27476629_S.jpgTwo changes have resulted from technology and human behavior related to the technology.  In the past, if one spouse wished to check up on their husband or wife, they would have had to hire a private investigator or engage in the tedious and time-consuming activity themselves.

Gray divorce and your retirement

27080778_S.jpgWhen a married couple looks towards retirement, they hope to have achieved some degree of financial stability. With the children gone, they may sell the family home, and with the proceeds of that sale, buy something smaller and that they will own outright. This allows them to eliminate the mortgage payment and the hidden cost of interest payments on that mortgage.

The end of a journey?

50325480_S.jpgMarriage is often said to be a journey. With many things, practice makes perfect, so you might expect with couples who have been married 15-, 20- or 30-years, that they would be unlikely to divorce after that amount of time, as they would have figured out how to maintain their relationship and their marriage.

Does it matter what other people think?

7907927_S.jpgAmericans have had shifting views on divorce. At one time, it was less common and was view unfavorably. Then, in the 1970s, with the widespread adoption of no-fault divorce law and the greater participation of women in the workforce, it became more common and more accepted.

Do you have a lot of "complicated externalities?"

11839942_S.jpgTechnology can do a great many amazing things. You can "face time" with a friend across town or in Europe or Asia. You can watch movies and television on your phone anywhere with a cell connection. You can post to your Facebook page and receive nearly instantaneous replies from people all over the world.

What will a divorce do to your business? Pt.2

4811238_S.jpgThe next issue is how to cover the expense of buying out your spouse's interest. You may need to liquidate some assets to buy their interest or perhaps trade assets. For this, you want to make certain you have the assistance of the necessary legal, tax, and financial advisers to prevent mistakes and ensure you understand all of your costs for this transaction.

What will a divorce do to your business?

27295163_S.jpgDivorce can bring many unexpected changes in your life. If you and your spouse have children, the change to your life while working through the parenting plan will likely be profound. The handoffs of your children every week, not having your kids on birthday's or holidays, the cost of child support and the expense of a new home or apartment will all mean next year will feel very different from last year.

Timing is everything

8358743_S.jpgSometimes, with a divorce, the timing may be unexpected. You may have been married 20 or 30 years, raised your children and be looking forward to your retirement when suddenly your spouse decides "it's over."
