Keep the drama at bay with divorce mediation

Divorce drama is not exclusive to angry and bitter couples in Atlanta. It plays a role in many divorce cases, regardless of economic status. You see and hear about how celebrity and wealthy couples fight tooth and nail over every single issue to keep their partners from getting what is rightfully theirs according to the laws of equitable distribution. 

Economic prosperity linked to higher divorce rate

You probably realize that severe financial difficulties -- and the resulting stress -- can lead to the breakdown of marital relationships. However, did you know that an abundance of wealth is also capable of destabilizing a relationship? There's a growing body of evidence that indicates that good economic times and personal prosperity are actually bad for the longevity of marriages overall.

How can you protect your business from divorce?

Business divorce is a term that refers to divorces that involve a business that both spouses own or that one spouse runs alone. One of the primary concerns of a solo business owner is whether the other spouse has a right to the business in divorce or not. Sometimes, spouses who have helped support the start of a business want to see the reward of doing so. Other times, a business that was already established may have little to do with the other spouse.

Parenting plans need to occur soon after divorce

The decision to divorce is one that impacts the two adults in many ways, but none of these compare to what their children are going through. These kids have lived with their parents in the same home for their entire childhood. Now, they are finding out that they will have to adjust to having two different homes and not being around both parents at the same time. This is a very difficult adjustment for them to make.

Alimony: Changes affect your rights

Spousal support is always a hot topic because many individuals end up staying home to support their spouses or are lower-earning spouses during a marriage and need support to move on independently. In many of these situations, it's women who end up needing support. This may be due to giving up a career to raise children or because of simply earning less than their male counterparts.

Working with your ex might make custody a tad easier

Children have a lot of questions when they find out that their parents are going to divorce. Many of these questions might revolve around whether they are responsible for split or not. As a parent, you will need to assure the children that the divorce was a personal decision between you and your ex. We know that this might be difficult but you need to work toward trying to help them understand what is going on.
