Grey divorce: older couples are filing more and more

37230984_S.jpgOver the last five years, you have probably heard about a phenomenon in the world of family law that has been gaining steam. It is called "grey divorce" and it refers to the notion that older couples are getting divorced more and more frequently. A grey divorce is when two spouses are aged 50 or older and they decide to get a divorce.

Deciding to divorce: financial considerations to make

34058336_S.jpgImagine a married couple that lives many years together. They obviously get used to a certain lifestyle and a certain routine, right/ Well, one day they have an argument that has been building for years, and the couple realizes that they have hit a very serious and potentially relationship-breaking impasse. After weeks, or perhaps months, of therapy and trying to figure out their problems, they realize there is simply no fixing their problem.

A reminder that divorce isn't always a bitter end

41099799_S.jpgOur source article for this post is a bit different than most other sources. It is a collection of Instagram posts that show divorcing couples posing for their "divorce selfie." Basically, divorcing couples are celebrating their divorce by taking a picture of themselves with their ex-spouses and showing the world that they are not confined or constrained by the stereotypes of divorce and the way most people expect certain events to turn out.

Spouses that receive child support: these costs are covered

42706524_S.jpgChild support is a crucial aspect to many divorce agreements not just because it helps a spouse who may not be fully able to cover certain expenses for a child, but because the child needs the financial resources to learn, grow and become the person that he or she wants to become. And yet, there are some people that think child support should only apply for a finite number of costs.

Time, accuracy and fairness: the qualities of a prenup

12172964_S (1).jpgImagine that you are preparing for your big wedding day. As you get dressed for the big occasion, your spouse comes to you and says that the two of you should sign a prenuptial agreement. The contract will protect you, your spouse says. Since you trust your spouse, you sign it, thinking that the document is in your best interest.

What to know if you pay or receive spousal support

46638040_S.jpgYou may think of your alimony payments as "just money," but there is far more to these critical payments than just numbers on a check. Alimony payments can be awarded in some divorce cases, and when they are, the former spouses involved have a responsibility to keep accurate and proper records regarding the payments they make or receive.

The issue of pet custody is a delicate and complex one

11188626_S.jpgSome married couples never have kids. There are many reasons that a couple may make this decision, and some of these couples may decide to get a pet instead -- or they may already have a pet before making their decision. They love their pet as if it were a child, training their pet and loving it as a family member. It is not surprising, then, that should a divorce occur, the pet owners are left worrying what will happen to their dog, cat or other animal.

6 mistakes to avoid during your divorce

14332133_S.jpgNo one is perfect; we all make mistakes. At no time can this be more evident than when people are going through a difficult situation like a divorce. This is because it can be very easy for two people to point out any and every bad decision, flaw or unwise choice that each other has exhibited during a marriage in an attempt to protect their own interests.

45779084_S.jpgThere has been a lot of talk about the many ways that social media and dating apps affect relationships, including marriages. We read stories about people who start affairs online or spend more time online than they do with the people around them.
