Divorce mediation is often preferred over a trial

Divorce cases can be handled through either mediation or litigation. The decision about which one of these to pursue is a difficult one for some people. There are several reasons why mediation is a better option for most people. These don't apply to cases that involve domestic violence or a narcissistic party because those cases are usually impossible to mediate.

Be careful if you consider dating during a divorce

There are a lot of things that happen when you decide that you are going to divorce your spouse. Once the petition is filed, you might decide to move on with your life. During this time, you might meet someone with whom you share a romantic connection. Unless the divorce is finalized, you have to be very careful at this point.

Divorce over 50 significantly impacts the finances of women

Many people assume that once you have been married for decades that their marriage will last forever. More and more senior citizens are going through divorces, however, and this can lead to financial trauma for them. The impact of splitting finances is much more difficult to overcome for older individuals than it is for younger people.

Challenges come with custody plans for special needs children

When your child has special needs, you have unique considerations to think about when you are going through a divorce. You can't fall into the mode of thinking that traditional norms are going to work for you. Thinking about your child's needs, requirements and wishes might help you to determine what needs to be done.

Co-parenting relationships should be built on positivity

Your co-parenting relationship begins at the second that you find out about the divorce. The tone of this relationship can be impacted by what happens during the child custody negotiations. It is imperative that you and your ex set the right stage for these situations. Everything that happens during this process can have a direct impact on your children.

Ease the stress that children feel on transition days

One of the most stressful things that children have to deal with during their parents' divorce is having to move back and forth between homes. For likely their entire lives, they have been living in the same house with both parents. The days that might be the hardest for them are the ones when they go from one parent's house to the other's. It is up to both adults to help them thrive despite these challenges.

Parenting plan terms must be handled carefully

The parenting plan that you and your ex agree to can have a big impact on your children. It is important that you try to get the terms set as quickly as possible because your children can settle into the new way of life, including the schedule, when you have everything set. We know that this isn't always easy, but it is important that you try to work things out so that you can move forward and help your children to do the same.
