1 big advantage to selling your home during divorce

You have a lot of options regarding your home during divorce. Some couples keep the home and share the mortgage payments so the kids do not have to move. Some sell the house and split up the profits. Others allow one spouse to buy out the mortgage and keep the house alone, while the other spouse moves on.

Are DUIs and DWIs the same?

Bird nesting: When a child stays in the marital home

Most people want to do what's best for their children when they decide to get a divorce. What's best for their children, in their minds, may be to stay in the marital home.

How to make custody exchange comfortable for all

Dealing with a custody arrangement is never easy. Even if you and your former spouse or the other parent of your child still speak, exchanging custody of the children can be stressful.

In fact, a prenuptial agreement can protect both parties and should be used to do so.

The holidays can still be good during a divorce with proper plans

The holidays can be hard on parents when they're in a loving relationship, but when a divorce is involved, it's a whole different situation. What was once a time to bond with their children could become a time to use their children against one another. This should never happen, but it can and does.

What does focusing on your child's best interests mean?

When you're going through a divorce, it's necessary to put your child first. Regardless of the situation, your child's best interests are paramount. Whether you make a parenting agreement yourself or have a judge order one, the result should be a situation that works in favor of your child.
