Child custody schedules should be practical for all parties

If you're a parent, you likely place an emphasis on finding time to spend with your children. This can be tricky enough when you are living in the same home with your children. But if you are going through a divorce and will be sharing custody, then scheduling parenting time is more complicated.

What steps can be taken to get a parent to pay child support?

If you are a single parent, you are likely aware of how expensive it is to properly provide for your child. You may even be struggling to simply keep up with the costs of housing, food and clothing. And your children may have activities and lessons that are also part your household budget. So, if you depend on child support to help pay for all of these routine expenses, it is critical that the payments arrive on time every month.

Prenuptials can protect property from more than just divorce

Just as most people do not like thinking about preparing a will, most engaged couples do not like to consider the need for a prenuptial agreement. Suggesting to a soon-to-be-spouse that you and he/she write a prenup can feel like stating that you do not truly believe this marriage will last. Unfortunately, over 40 percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce, so divorce is a fact of life. Preparing a prenuptial does not suggest in any way that you do not expect to stay married to your spouse for the remainder of your natural life; it is simply a document that will help offer protection and potentially prevent expensive and lengthy litigation should the unthinkable occur.

Grandparents may be denied the right to spoil their grandchildren

Divorce tears everyone's world apart, literally and figuratively. Battles over property, finances and retirement funds can rage on for months, and sometimes even years. Parents may find themselves fighting over custody, where the children will spend their holidays and who pays for orthodontic work and school fees. The children may find themselves caught in the crossfire, and friends and family may feel uncomfortable weighing in on every issue.  Grandparents, sometimes the best stabilizing force for the children around, may be left out in the cold.

A list of what divorce can do for you

Divorce is an emotionally charged subject. Most people do not seek a divorce unless there are irreconcilable grievances that cannot be resolved within the marriage. Usually, this means that there is an intense emotional component. Anger, jealousy and hurt all combine to make the divorce process incredibly taxing on the individual and their family. This article will go over what a divorce can and can't do for you.
