Couples are increasingly turning to alternatives like divorce mediation and collaborative divorce instead of taking the traditional divorce route.
A child is a lot of responsibility. They require a lot of attention and energy while they’re young, and a lot of planning and saving for when they’re older.
The stress of all this can be hard to manage, let alone dealing with it after a divorce. Just because you’re no longer with your spouse doesn’t mean you can’t work together to plan and prepare for the future of your kids, though.
Many people think that making the initial decision to get a divorce is the hardest part of the whole process. While it is a challenging call to make, the later choices you’ll have to make can be especially difficult when you don’t fully understand what you’re getting into.
In order to have successful mediation sessions and make well-informed decisions, you’ll want to come prepared with a comprehensive list of all of your assets and debts. Without this, you and your ex-partner are left disputing the “what-ifs” and “maybes” without knowing exactly what you’re dividing.
Today, social media is used by just about everyone. Platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat attract just about everyone to share snippets of their lives with their following. These sites are a great way to stay connected and have fun online. However, when you’re in the middle of a divorce, they should be used with great caution.
