Social Security benefits and divorce

Did you know that you may be eligible to receive a portion of your spouse's Social Security retirement benefits after you divorce? Many people going through a divorce are not aware that this is something to consider and to address as part of the process. In fact, it can be a significant benefit that should be pursued. Social Security benefits are not dividable under Federal law, but are an economic circumstance to be considered in both the division of marital assets and cash flow after the divorce is completed.

Forgiveness after divorce? It can be powerful.

The process of divorce is often painful. Spouses can say and do hurtful and mean things which leave a negative impact on the other spouse. This usually goes both ways. When faced with the end of a marriage, both people feel a significant personal loss and many lash out in reaction to his or her frustration and pain. In addition to the negative feelings spouses having about the process of divorce, the relationship probably ended due to behavior during the marriage that can lead to long-term lingering negativity about the other spouse. 

What is the best form of communication for co-parenting?

When parents separate and their children are required to transition from home to home, it is important to maintain an open line of communication between co-parents. This can be a challenge for most separated parents. Which communication method you use depends upon a number of factors, including the level of conflict that exists in your co-parenting relationship.

Nesting as a transitional arrangement in divorce

When a couple decides to separate, one of the first considerations is regarding what will happen to the children. Many parents begin to question how the separation will affect the children, whether the separation will affect the parent-child relationship, and how will the transition impact the daily lives of all family members. One of the biggest and most significant questions is often how to minimize any negative impact on the children.
