Gray divorce and your health

If you are like most people in Pennsylvania, you are well aware of the fact that getting divorced can sting financially. The mere reality that you and your spouse must split your marital assets alone makes that very evident. Add to that the fact that you must support two separate households on what you previously supported one household with and the financial challenges associated with a divorce only grow.

How should you navigate your first post-divorce holiday?

Divorce brings with it many complications, especially when you have children. If you recently obtained a Pennsylvania divorce, you may be feeling down and more than a little lost. Fortunately for you, MSN Lifestyle provides a few tips for coping with the holidays post-divorce.

Facing the difficult realities of divorce

Pennsylvanian couples who are getting a divorce will have their expectation of how it will go, and then they will be faced with the reality of the situation. That isn't to say there won't be overlap between the two, but there are certainly going to be cases in which something occurs that wasn't anticipated.

Informing kids about divorce

Parents in Pennsylvania who face the daunting task of telling their children that they are getting divorced may understandably feel their stomachs in knots when picturing the conversation. There is no easy way to break the news to kids that their parents will be splitting up but there are some things that moms and dads can do to prevent the experience from being worse or more difficult than it needs to be and to help children begin to process the changes to come.

What can and cannot be in a prenup

Engaged couples in Pennsylvania might naturally want to focus their energies on planning their wedding and honeymoon but smart couples will also look beyond that and focus on planning their lives beyond the wedding. Part of doing this involves looking at some of the challenges they may encounter, including even a potential divorce. This exercise can force people to talk about difficult topics that they may otherwise avoid but that can help them in the long run.

Divorcing when struggling with debt

Many a Pennsylvania couple has found themselves headed for divorce and struggling with serious piles of debt at the same time. In fact, it is well-known that financial problems often contribute to marital struggles and even to some divorces. If you are in this situation, you might even be wondering if you and your spouse should file for bankruptcy before you get divorced. The answer to this question may depend on several different factors.

Important uses for a prenup

Many Pennsylvania residents might think that a prenuptial agreement is only useful for couples who are very wealthy such as celebrities or politicians. However, that is far from the case today as these marital contracts offer even the everyday or middle class couple many benefits. Understanding what a prenup can do is important for any serious dating couple.

Can I keep my business when I divorce?

If you own and operate a business with your husband or wife, you know that this can offer the two of you a very good life together. It can, however, become a source of struggle as it has for many other Pennsylvania couples before you. The struggles can only get worse if your marriage starts to fall apart and you appear headed down the path to divorce. At this point you will want to carefully evaluate your options for the business you have worked so hard to create and build.

Is it ok to use social media when getting divorced?

For many people in Pennsylvania, social media is part and parcel of everyday life. In the past decade, it has become an integral means of staying in touch with friends and family members and sharing important life events and milestones. However, if you are in the midst of a divorce or are contemplating getting divorced, you might want to think twice before you make a post on your favorite social platform.
