Tue, 05 Jul 2016 13:29:19 -0500

When people talk about the end of a marriage they often mix up their terminology. They sometimes use legal terms that have very specific meanings without due attention. It is common, for instance, to use the term "divorce" to refer to the termination of a marriage in all cases when, in reality, dissolution (or even a legal separation) is meant. The matter is further complicated by the fact that the definition of these terms varies from state to state.

Who Will Pay For the Kids' College Education After the Divorce?

Mon, 16 May 2016 11:53:26 -0500

During the divorce process, parents have a long list of issues to discuss and settle upon, including the division of their assets (e.g. home, cars, bank accounts, retirement accounts, pension plans, etc.), the division of their debts (e.g. credit cards, car loans, personal loans, equity loans, college loans, etc.), child custody and visitation schedule, child support, and spousal support. In their Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA), parents will often include who will pay for child care (usually split equally), school expenses, and extracurricular activity expenses. However, parents will not always include a directive regarding post-high school education. They may not think about this issue at the time of negotiating the terms of their divorce, especially when children are still young and years away from seeking post-high school education. This may lead to friction and arguments in the future, as the cost of technical schools as well as public and private college education continues to rise.

Do Grandparents Have Visitation Rights After a Divorce?

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 08:10:54 -0500

No matter the state of residency, grandparents are not automatically granted legal rights that allow them to visit their grandchildren simply because of the family connection. Additionally, no state allows grandparents to petition for visitation while both parents are still married and/or live together. In California, the only situations when the court allows grandparents to file a motion for visitation are if the parents are divorced and/or do not live together anymore; if one of the parent is incarcerated or deceased; or if a parent's whereabouts are unknown.

Will Mediation Bring Us Back Together?

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 13:24:27 -0500

By the time struggling couples decide to hire a divorce mediator, one or both of the spouses have decided that the marriage has deteriorated so much, it is beyond saving and therefore should end.

Since 1900, the divorce rate among people age 50 and older has more than doubled, accounting for more than 10% of all divorces. These so-called "gray divorces" are the result of people living longer and not wanting to spend that time with someone they no longer love; being empty nesters with no common interests or goals; children leaving the home, thus eliminating the primary reason to stay together; and more women earning their own income so they are not dependent upon their husband's being the sole breadwinner. Second and third marriages have high failure rates and also tend to contribute...

Divorce Mediation Not Working? When to Get a Lawyer

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 12:14:40 -0500

When facing the difficult decision to divorce, many couples consider either litigation (each spouse uses their own attorney), or mediation (both spouses work with one neutral divorce mediator to reach an agreement) and usually believe these two options are exclusive of each other.
