Is thinking about divorce a red flag?

If you are married and find yourself wondering about whether you should pursue a divorce, your thought process may or may not be a red flag. It is safe to say that most married couples have contemplated divorce at one time or another. No matter how solid your union is, you and your spouse have bound your lives together and there is bound to be friction when two people attempt to live life on the same path.

Reeling from post-divorce whiplash?

It is all too easy to dream about the future. From the time that we are children, we imagine what our futures will look like. It is rare that anyone imagines that he or she will marry and eventually divorce. It is for this reason that many individuals suffer from a kind of post-divorce emotional whiplash. When one’s vision for the future suddenly and radically changes, it can be difficult to recover from this turn of events emotionally.

Thinking about the airing of dirty laundry during divorce

The American experience is increasingly interconnected. Not only is travel within the nation’s borders relatively quick and efficient, communication is increasingly quick, efficient and broad. Although Americans still meet face-to-face in order to socialize and conduct business, the majority of Americans use cellphones, social media and other electronic communication platforms to communicate with many individuals at once.

Rehabilitating your credit during and post-divorce

You may or may not have paid close attention to the state of your credit score during the course of your marriage. Regardless of whether or not you have in the past, it is critically important that you pay attention to it now that you are either seeking a divorce or have recently finalized one. As you begin to build your financial foundation as a single individual, your credit score will almost certainly impact many of the financial decisions you will be able to make moving forward.

Putting away funds 'just in case' of divorce

Prenuptial agreements used to be relatively taboo. They were often perceived as a safeguard against so-called “gold diggers” and were therefore avoided by couples who believed that their unions would withstand the tests of time. However, prenuptial agreements are now generally considered to be an intelligent legal tool used to both strengthen marriages and protect both parties in the event that an unexpected divorce does occur for any reason.

Think twice before treating your ex poorly online

Social media has proven to be a powerful venue. Social media campaigns have sparked interest in world events, have helped to spread the word about worthy causes and have connected countless loved ones. In these ways, social media has proven to be a positive force. However, it can also be used as a tool for spreading hate, misinformation and a host of other negative forces.

Should you add a social media clause to your divorce settlement?

When you and your spouse either chose to recite traditional wedding vows or vows you wrote yourself, you likely took time to consider the meaning and consequences of each of those vows. Much like wedding vows, the individual considerations listed within a divorce settlement need to be treated thoughtfully. If you make your divorce settlement too complex, the construction of it could negatively impact your newly single life. Similarly, if your divorce settlement neglects key considerations, your future could be negatively impacted as well.

Answering your child's tough questions about divorce

If you and your spouse have decided to divorce, you may be concerned about how your divorce will impact any number of issues and relationships in your life. If you have children, you are likely most concerned about how your divorce will impact them. This is an understandable concern. Thankfully, numerous studies indicate that most children emerge from the aftermath of divorce unscathed by any lasting harm.

Refocusing your divorce process - Part I

If you are currently navigating a divorce, you likely understand that the legal, emotional and physical processes of dissolving a marriage can be stressful, draining and seemingly endless. As a result, it is important to check in with yourself throughout your divorce process in order to better ensure that your actions are focused upon achieving a healthy future.
