Divorce records might be able to be sealed

Divorce records are public records. In most cases, the testimony that occurs during a divorce trial is also public record. This is one reason why some people opt to work things out in private. When you and your ex can come to a divorce settlement in private, such as in informal talks or mediation, you can avoid having to air out all the dirty laundry in a public manner.

Put the children first: How to tell them about divorce

Some children can sense when their parents are fighting and changes are coming, but others are oblivious and may be caught off-guard at the news of divorce. If you are divorcing and you have children, how you tell them can make a huge difference in how they process the news.

Preparation is the key for ending a marriage

We recently discussed what will happen to children if a parent goes to jail. While this is a unique child custody issue, it does show that there are some instances in which parents might have to rush to come up with a plan for custody. For parents who are divorced, this is a very trying issue.

Divorce mediation might help you end the marriage faster

Divorce settlements are the key to getting your case resolved as quickly as possible. While it might be tempting to fight your ex tooth and nail, doing so can draw out your divorce. It can also cost you more time and money. Instead, you can consider using a method of alternative dispute resolution to get the settlement hashed out.

Divorce cases can include various factors

When you go through a divorce, whether you are going through a same-sex or an opposite-sex divorce, you have specific things to think about. We know that you might not be able to think clearly if the divorce came as a shock to you. We are here to help you work through the issues that are present in your case so that you can move on with your life.

Do women show more financial literacy after a divorce than men?

Divorces, whether they involve high-asset couples or not, tend to have serious financial repercussions for the parties involved. But now, a new survey of CPA financial planners suggests that women are doing a much better job than men in becoming financially educated following a divorce.

Considerations for divorce at any age

No matter what age you are when you find out that your marriage is ending, you have to think about your future. As we discussed last week, there are some specific considerations that you have to think about if you are older. There are also specific points to consider if you are younger.

Financial planning for older divorcing couples is key

Divorce rates among couples in their 50s and older are increasing. People are living longer, and many people find that once their kids are grown and out of the house, they no longer have things in common. Sometimes they simply aren't happy anymore. Why spend what could possibly be another few decades of your life in an unhappy marriage?
