In our previous blog post, we discussed how Ryan Adams and Mandy Moore's divorce was being held up because of pet-related issues. While that isn't an issue for many people who are going through a divorce, it is a good example of why you should be prepared for anything when you are going through a divorce. We know that you might have some questions about the divorce process. We can help you get answers to those questions.
Having significant assets can complicate a divorce alone. Owning a business or multiple businesses? That can really complicate things. This is because a business can have both tangible and intangible values. Determining just how must value there is can become a contested property division issue. If this sounds like this could be your divorce scenario, being fully informed is the first step.
While many people are concerned about child custody and child support during a divorce, with more and more couples choosing to postpone having children — or forego it all together — a new trend is developing. Pet custody is currently a fairly uncharted territory within the family courts since most states treat pets the same as any other kind of property. One example of the difficulties these situations can bring is playing out right now in the high-profile divorce of Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams.
Infertility can be a very painful problem that affects many people every year in the United States. Fortunately, technology and modern science have given couples many options to attempt to get pregnant now or in the future, with one of these being in vitro fertilization. In vitro fertilization treatment involves implanting embryos, and there are usually several embryos prepared and frozen until the couple is ready to try a pregnancy.
Almost everyone would agree that having multiple children increases responsibilities and stress for parents. Some studies have shown that the more children a couple has, the higher their chance of divorce later on. When one child is found to have a disability, it would seem that this risk would be even higher. However, one study claims otherwise.
Ending a marriage is a time of transition for both parties. Even if you were the person who wanted to file for the divorce, the transition isn't going to be without stress. During this time of transition, keeping stress to a minimum is necessary because chronic stress, such as the stress associated with divorce, isn't something that is healthy for you.
While it may not be at the forefront of your mind when you are in the middle of divorce negotiations, the tax implications of paying or receiving alimony are an important factor to keep in mind. Unlike child support, alimony can be deducted from your taxes if it meets certain requirements. Alimony must also be reported as income on your taxes as required if you are the one receiving the payments.
While most people getting ready to divorce are concerned about issues such as child support, custody and how the assets will be divided, there are smaller details that can slip through the cracks. For many people, getting a divorce also means changing their name, and this can be a surprisingly complex experience.
Pope Francis has shown that he's all about reform, and his latest measure has been to change the way that members of the Catholic faith can get marriage annulments. It's going to be easier, faster and cheaper than seen in the past.
Researchers have known for decades that women are more likely to petition for divorce, but a new study presented to the American Sociological Association this year may change the current beliefs on why this is true. The study looked at 2,262 people over the age of 18 who were in heterosexual relationships and had the participants answer questions about those relationships.
