Address your child's concerns when you decide to divorce

Children sometimes feel tremendous stress when they find out that their parents are going through a divorce. This might not be because of arguments between the parents. In some cases, children stress over not knowing what the future will hold. The change in circumstances can be a primary concern for them.

Dealing with your kids' emotions during divorce

Your divorce is a time of major changes for everyone in your family. Parents need to figure out how to help their children. In order to do this, you have to remember that one source of their feelings is that they don't have control over what is happening. On top of this, they have to learn how to deal with emotions that they might not be familiar with and that are strong and hard to control.

Points to consider during a divorce

A divorce is a big step for any adult. When you decide that your marriage is officially over, and you are ready to legally end it, you will need to file the petition. Remember that this isn't the end of it. You have some work to do, more than likely with your ex. Before the court will grant the divorce, you have to figure out how to divide property and make plans for the children. These can be rather complex matters.

Divorce elements should be individually considered

Once you decide that your marriage is over, you will have to work through the legal points necessary to end it. Your circumstances will determine what needs to be done, so be sure that you look at things as they apply to you. Remember that what happened with a friend isn't necessarily going to be the case for your situation. We are here to help guide you through the divorce process.

The effect of a criminal record on your child custody case

If you're a divorcing parent with a criminal record, you may assume that this record will prevent you from being granted any child custody rights -- particularly if your spouse doesn't want to share custody. Judges who are called on to decide custody cases focus on what's in the child's best interests. Your criminal history may or may not impact your ability to parent your children in a safe, healthy, positive way.

How to avoid being a victim of dissipation of assets

As you're going through a divorce, you and your spouse likely still have accounts that belong to both of you. That means that either one of you can withdraw as much as you choose. If your estranged spouse is angry, vindictive, hurt or simply wants to walk away with as many of the marital assets as possible, they may empty out those accounts on frivolous, unnecessary purchases.
