Apologizing to kids for divorce: What to say and what not to say

8756576_S.jpgApologies are complex and nuanced things. People apologize in many ways, for many different reasons - not all of them honorable. We may apologize because we are truly sorry. We might apologize to make another person feel comfortable. We may apologize to be polite. We may apologize simply to end an argument . . . the list goes on.

Divorce mistakes to avoid: Insulting your ex in front of the kids

11954767_S.jpgIn today's post, we'll be continuing an occasional-installment series about the most common divorce mistakes people make. Our last post in the series focused on taking legal advice from anyone and everyone except your attorney - the person you hired specifically for legal advice.

Smart moves to protect your finances in divorce: Part II

13044484_S.jpgEarlier this week, we began a discussion about how divorce can negatively impact your finances right now and for years to come. If you're worried about how much the divorce is going to cost, hiring a team of professionals (in addition to your attorney) may seem counterintuitive.

How to be supportive when your loved ones divorce

19533102_S.jpgIf someone you care about has decided to seek a divorce, you may be understandably confused as to how to support him or her. After all, everyone handles sensitive matters in different ways. Therefore, the ways in which you may have supported someone who opted to navigate the divorce process in the past may not be effective when it comes to your loved one who is seeking a divorce now.

How to get your 'groove back' post-divorce

21490691_S.jpgIt is perhaps an obvious statement to note that divorce can temporarily take the spring out of anyone's step. Even if a divorce is amicable and even if a divorce has been longed-for, there are elements of the divorce process that can be unquestionably draining. From legal practicalities to grief, divorce can be stressful and truly sad.

Gray divorce may be complicated by mental health issues

9529113_S.jpgAmerica's largest generation is reaching old age. It has long been predicted that baby boomer retirement would dramatically affect the state of the American workforce. But other, less-anticipated problems are also emerging, including the increasing rates of "gray divorce" and high rates of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Giving yourself endurance in a family law dispute: Part II

Thumbnail image for 16979723_S.jpgLast week, we began a discussion about coping with divorce, child custody proceedings or any other family law dispute. Although these matters are stressful and will impact other parts of your life, the fact that they often take between a year and 18 months to finalize means that you must treat your family law dispute as a marathon and not a sprint.

Divorcing well: Choosing to rise above your spouse's badmouthing

9491202_S.jpgOne of the worst aspects of divorce for most people is the emotional turmoil, much of which is due to the nasty things said by their soon-to-be ex. When facing the hurt and vulnerability that comes at the end of a relationship, both spouses may act uncharacteristically cruel toward one another.
