Dealing with a Wasteful Spouse During Divorce

With divorce comes the division of debts and assets. For many couples, this can be a contentious issue. However, it may be made worse if one divorcing party has a spending problem. Assets can be depleted, sometimes significantly, which can result in a decreased settlement. Be it an intentional depletion of assets or a simple issue with knowing how to budget and spend accordingly, the following information can help you deal with a wasteful spouse during a divorce. 

Parenting Time and a History of Abuse

When your relationship with an ex-spouse or ex-partner involves an element of abuse, it can be difficult to think of your child spending time with that person. However, a history of abuse may not cancel out the child's right to a relationship with their other parent. Understanding this, and dealing with it can be difficult, but there are things that you can do to put your own mind and heart at ease. Learn more about your options regarding possible parenting time restrictions when there is a history of abuse, including when and where to seek assistance. 

When and How You Tell Your Spouse About the Divorce Can Impact the Outcome

The decision to divorce is rarely made in a day. In fact, it is not uncommon to spend months or years deliberating and wrestling with the possibility of ending a marriage. Unfortunately, this means that some may become impatient to move forward with their lives. As such, they may move too quickly through the divorce process, upset their spouse, and ultimately create a negative divorce experience. Thankfully, there is a better way. 

Summer Scheduling Conflicts After Divorce or Separation

Managing summer schedules can be difficult for any parent, but those who have recently separated or divorced can find the summer shuffle especially challenging. Duties, errands, activities, and supervision needs that were once met by two parents in the same household become more complicated because they must now include moving the child from one parent's home to the other. Further, parents may need to work more frequently to accommodate their higher cost of living, and all that can add up to a hectic and stressful summer after divorce or separation. Thankfully, there are ways to mitigate against the issues.

Saving Money in Your Gray Divorce

Overall, Americans are living longer, healthier lives than just a few decades ago. Ultimately, that is a positive thing, but this increased longevity is having a somewhat adverse effect on the older generation. With divorce rates for this population now double what they were just twenty years ago, many people entering retirement have found themselves financially strapped, despite having planned for their golden years. Why is this happening, and what can be done about it? The following explains. 

Failing to Follow Through on Post-Divorce Actions Can Have Lasting Financial Consequences

For most couples, divorce does not end upon decree. Instead, there are little details that must be sorted out, issues that must be resolved. Unfortunately, some couples fail to handle these matters and then place themselves at risk for long-term financial consequences. The following information can help you avoid making the same mistake after your divorce.
