Understand how mediation can help resolve child custody cases

Child custody orders are something that many parents opt to try to work out together. Child custody mediation is one way that this can be done. Instead of working with just your ex, you would work with a third-party mediator who could help to keep the focus of the negotiations on your child. This is often helpful if the divorce is a particularly contentious one.

The rising trend in gray divorce

It is common knowledge that 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce, with higher rates in subsequent marriages. Most of these ending marriages are relatively new, usually occurring before the 10th anniversary. However, divorce is also rising among those 55 and older and is known as "gray divorce."

Prenuptial agreements can help with property division

Getting married is a big event in a person's life. If you are getting ready to say "I do" to the person who has captured your heart, you should make sure to take steps to protect your future. For many people, this means having a prenuptial agreement signed.

Your divorce might impact your credit worthiness

There are some ways that getting a divorce might impact you even years down the road. Your credit report is one of these ways. When you get divorced, you and your ex will have to split everything that is considered marital property. This includes not only assets, but also debts. Here is where things get a bit complicated.

Divorce mediation might be possible in a high-asset divorce

Our previous two blog posts discussed divorce mediation and how this might be a viable option for many divorces. People who are going through high-asset divorces often think that they aren't going to be able to go through mediation. This isn't the case. While mediation might take longer because of the many issues present in these divorces, it is still an option for many people as long as you and your ex can negotiate.
