Can you still retire as you plan to after your divorce?

If you're getting close to retirement age but you find yourself thinking of a fresh beginning, you may consider divorce. Divorce used to be more common among younger couples, but modern divorces include couples who have been married for decades. With the children out of the house and the potential for long days together ahead, you may find that you no longer want to remain married.

A history of abuse or violence can impact your custody case

One reason that marriages come to an end is abusive or dangerous behavior by one spouse. Many couples have several happy years before abuse becomes a factor. By that point, the other person may not feel like he or she can leave. This is particularly true if there are minor children. A spouse being physically or emotionally abused may worry about trying to leave and the potential impact on the kids.

Is nesting a practical way to share custody in a divorce?

If you haven't heard of the term nesting, you may not understand this somewhat unusual trend in custody and divorces. Nesting is basically the practice of allowing the children to stay in the family home while the parents transition in and out of the space. Unlike traditional custody arrangements, where children move between two homes, nesting can minimize the impact of divorce on the daily lives of the children involved.

Self improvement is a priority after a divorce

The end of a marriage is the start of a new beginning. It is your time to get out, find things you enjoy and improve yourself. When you are ready to do this, you need to take things slowly. The last thing that you need is to rush forward and end up in a position where you don't want to be.

Adjust your social media use to protect yourself in a divorce

These days, people use social media as a primary means of communicating with friends, family and the world in general. However, you need to carefully consider how you're using social media when going through a divorce. Making the wrong decision or posting the wrong thing to Facebook or Twitter could end up impacting your divorce, from asset division to child custody.

4 ways you can protect your finances in a divorce

If things have not been going well in your marriage lately, you might be considering divorce. However, you might be worried about what comes after, where you will live and how you will support yourself. If your husband has been the main breadwinner, your future financial situation might be your biggest concern. This is actually a common fear of many women who face the possibility of divorce.
