How do I equitably divide artwork in a divorce settlement?

When couples divorce, every single object, asset and debt that they share must ultimately be addressed in one way or another. As a result, the process of determining property division as it pertains to a divorce settlement can be understandably complex. Some couples opt for a relatively peaceful property division process, while others fight over every single spoon and light bulb they own. It is safe to assert that most couples tend to fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. For the most part, they are able to agree on property-related matters, with several contested matters up for debate during the negotiating process.

Divorced or divorcing? Lessons from 'Self-Improvement Month'

Are you aware of the fact that September is “Self-Improvement Month”? It may seem odd to you that September has received this designation, primarily because January is the month that most Americans likely associate with the act of self-improvement. And yet, it is somewhat refreshing that a month generally associated with lovely weather and relatively low levels of stress has been designated a time that one should consider investing in self-improvement.

Navigating Social Security matters during divorce

If you are nearing retirement or have already reached the age of retirement, you may have questions about how your Social Security benefits will be impacted by your divorce. This is a complex question and the answer to it is dependent on a variety of circumstances. Therefore, it is generally a good idea to speak to your attorney about your concerns in order to get a solid picture of how your Social Security benefits will be treated both during and in the wake of your divorce.

How do I prepare to file for divorce?

If you either know or suspect that you may be filing for divorce from your spouse, it is important to take several proactive steps that may help to protect your interests as your situation develops. Many individuals either know or suspect that they will eventually file for divorce, but they choose to put off the process for any number of reasons. Perhaps a personal illness or the illness of a family member makes filing for divorce imprudent at this time. Perhaps a compelling financial reason makes filing for divorce after the New Year a responsible choice. Perhaps you are waiting until the holiday season has wrapped up before you file.

Tips for co-parenting effectively during the school year

When most Americans contemplate the seasons, they think about “Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.” However, many co-parents understandably measure the seasons as “School and Summer.” Some child custody arrangements allow children’s schedules to change dramatically between the summer and the school year. But even for those families whose child custody arrangements remain relatively stable between summer and the school year, the transition between these two points in time can be challenging.
