Reasons range for older couples who divorce

When a couple has been married for 20, 30 or even 40 years of marriage, it often comes as a shock when they announce their decision to divorce. Just what could have caused a divorce after such a long marriage? Had the decision been in the works for years? Is this the result of a mid-life crisis?

Mediation an option for reaching a child custody agreement

While divorce can be particularly hard on anyone, those couples with children can find the process especially grueling during child custody battles. In these cases, while the idea is to make decisions based on what is the best for the children, there are plenty of cases where a parent puts their wants ahead of their children. In some cases, these parents sadly even start to use the children as financial pawns. When this happens -- or there is just a lot of arguing -- the results can be particularly traumatic for children.

Can a Missouri prenuptial agreement be broken?

When a couple gets married, most expect to spend the rest of their lives together. And while this does sometimes happen, for the just-in-case it's best to make sure to have a prenuptial agreement in place before walking down the aisle. However, aside from making sure to have a prenuptial agreement to protect assets, it's also important to make sure that the agreement makes sense, is fair to both parties involved, and would be enforceable should it ever be needed.

Correlation between divorce rates and household chores

A recent study is sure to shock quite a few readers. It turns out that in those marriages where housework duties are split between a husband and a wife, those couples have a 50 percent greater chance of divorce than those couples where the wife is the one doing most of the chores.

Missouri: Equitable division and what it means for marital debts

When going through a divorce, each spouse normally spends a good amount of time worrying about how assets are going to be divided. Is the ex-husband going to keep the home? Is the wife going to try and take the family van? Just how are the bank accounts going to be split up?

Study: Time with dad boosts children's self-esteem

It's important for divorced fathers to maintain a lasting relationship with their children. For not only is this something that means a lot to dads, a recent study also determined that children who spend more one-on-one time with their fathers have better self-esteem.

75 percent of children adjust just fine to divorce

There are plenty of parents who are arguing and very unhappy in their marriages, yet they continue to stay together thinking that it's in the best interests of the children. But, it turns out that what is really best for children is to be in a loving and caring environment, even if that means going back and forth between mom's house and dad's house.

Make sure to learn about finances after divorce

It's perfectly normal for in a marriage for there to be one person in charge of the bills. This spouse may be the one in charge of not only making sure things like a mortgage and electric bill are paid on time, but could also be the same person in charge of all of the family's budgeting. But then, what happens in the case of a divorce? What about that spouse who wasn't in charge of finances?
