One woman's positive outlook after divorce

Divorce at any age can be devastating, but it can be particularly difficult for those that have been married for a long time. There are a lot of memories associated with the marriage and it can be hard to let go of them and move forward. Recently, an article detailed how a 56-year-old woman struggled to move forward when she divorced her husband of nearly 26 years.

What does divorce teach us about marriage?

They say "if at first you don't succeed, try try again." This quote, in combination with "insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results," can really help us learn from our mistakes. This is especially true in divorce. It's safe to say that most people don't go into marriage hoping to divorce. This remains true whether it's your first marriage or your fourth. Perhaps one of the positive aspects of divorce is that it can teach you a little more about marriage.

Small steps toward a less stressful divorce (PART 2)

In our last post we began a discussion on how to make divorce a little less stressful. Unfortunately stress plays a key role in divorce, although it varies from person to person. These seemingly small steps may be helpful in curbing that stress.

Small steps toward a less stressful divorce (PART 1)

It's unlikely that any divorce is particularly easy, but most people can understand why a divorce that involves a child can be one of the most difficult. If there are no children involved, the spouses can part ways and never (or almost never) contact each other again unless they are working to untie a few loose ends. If there is a child involved, things get a lot trickier. Some parents can't wait until the child's 18th birthday because it is a sign that they are finally untied from their ex. But in reality, because you are both parents to your child, that tie may never really be gone.

My ex isn't paying court-ordered child support - what do I do?

Many parents have been down the road of fighting for every penny of child support that is owed to them. It's an unfortunate reality but sometimes the other parent is unwilling or unable to pay child support. So what can the receiving parent do in that situation?

I'm not happy with the family court's ruling -- can I appeal?

You've been going through divorce proceedings for the better part of a year now and things are finally starting to reach an end. You are both anxious and relieved that the judge will be making his or her final decision in your case. There are several possible outcomes, but you are hopeful that the judgment will lean your way.

The value of bringing in experts during a divorce (PART 2)

In our last post we began a discussion about the value of bringing in experts during a divorce. Some might think involving experts may be too costly, but they also have to consider the cost of splitting assets without knowing their true value.

We've been talking a lot lately about issues that are specific to high-asset divorces. These types of divorces can be extremely challenging because they have so many moving parts. Take, for example, a couple who have been married for 25 years. The husband has worked hard to build the family business with the continuous help of his wife. His wife has been the primary caretaker of their three kids, taken on secretarial duties for their company and maintained the home. Now, the two are headed for divorce.
