What exactly does 'fair' mean when it comes to divorce?

20142112_S.jpgFrom the time that we are young children, most of us are concerned with fairness. Kids are quick to point out when they are not being treated fairly or equally compared to a sibling or friend. In many cases, this need to call out unfairness doesn't go away as we get older (but many of us might be less likely to complain if an unfair situation benefits us).

What factors do courts consider in property division?

29307830_S.jpgDifferent states have different approaches when it comes to splitting up property in divorce. As some readers may know, it is standard classify states as using either a community property approach or an equitable division approach.

Contrasting opinions on how to discuss divorce with kids

38883718_S.jpgEarlier this month, we wrote a two-part post about how to discuss divorce with your children. No matter what their age, it is not easy for kids to hear that their parents are getting a divorce. And it is even scarier if they have no idea how the divorce will impact their daily lives.

Divorce laws are changing - for better and for worse: Part II

12448678_S.jpgIn our last post, we began a discussion about states changing the laws that govern marriage, divorce and child custody. Divorce is an especially frequent topic of legislative debate, with some states working to make divorce more difficult and others working to make it easier.

Having the dreaded divorce talk with your children: Part II

20142112_S.jpgToday, we'll be continuing our discussion about the divorce "talk." This is the challenge that parents face when telling their kids they are divorcing or separating. Because this news can be devastating to children, it is important to carefully plan how and when to have the conversation in order to minimize harm and maximize support.

Having the dreaded divorce talk with your children: Part I

38883717_S.jpgIn previous posts, we have discussed the idea that how parents communicate with their children is a major factor in how well the children are able to cope with divorce and a new co-parenting arrangement. Because such changes are scary and difficult for kids, it's particularly important for parents to show stability and love as often as possible.
