Property division matters require carefully planning

When you are trying to divide assets during a divorce, you might come across some significant challenges. These will likely stem around the valuation of assets like retirement and investment portfolios.

Beware of behavior issues in children during divorce

As the holidays approach, you are probably focused on making the season as special as you can for your children.

Handling these matters early is usually best, as it affords you the time to implement changes.

Tips to help you prepare for divorce before you file

The start of the year is a time when people tend to evaluate their life choices. If you are currently in an unhappy marriage, you might decide that you are ready to call it quits.

Preparing for this step is a good idea if you are going to file for divorce soon.

Modifications of support payments are sometimes necessary

Reduce holiday stress by planning ahead for custody issues

Even parents who have been divorced for many years are probably looking for ways that they can take some of the stress out of the holiday season. Since child custody matters are a big source of stress during this time of year, parents who have a shared custody arrangement should take the time to plan properly right now. Going into the hustle and bustle knowing what to expect can be beneficial.
