What happens with joint bank accounts during divorce?

The process of property division during a divorce has spouses separating all the belongings they have acquired during their marriage. For many married couples, this includes bank accounts. Most married spouses share joint savings and checking accounts, and understanding what happens to those accounts during and after divorce is extremely important information.

Same-sex couples need to establish parental rights through adoption

Becoming a parent is one of the greatest joys many husbands and wives get to experience. In same-sex relationships, it is vital that each parent -- including the parent without a biological tie to the child -- establish and maintain their parental rights.

Success may indicate it's time for a postnup

Many younger couples get married before becoming successful. If you are one of them, marriage may have taken place during or right after college and before finding the perfect career. When just starting out, protecting assets and wealth was probably the last thing on your mind. However, if you are now successful and concerned with how a divorce may impact your financial well-being, it may be time to consider a postnuptial agreement.

It's smart to take a closer look at property division

Some divorcing couples are surprised to find out that they fall in the category of high net worth marriages. Unfortunately, this revelation may only come after the marriage has fallen apart and the couple is seeking a divorce. The most common aspects of a divorce get substantially more complex for these couples. A high net worth marriage may also mean a high asset divorce, and for couples facing a divorce of this caliber, it is always best to work with an experienced legal professional.

Child custody tied to child support

It should come as no surprise that, throughout the course of a divorce, few issues are as highly disputed as child custody. The very thought of sharing quality parent-child time with an ex can be maddening. Fortunately, by working with an experienced family law attorney, divorcing parents can maximize the time spent with their children.

Counseling may help your child make it through your divorce

Many divorces turn into ugly battles that impact every member of the family. Children feel every pinch and pull during this process, and when parents argue over custody, a child's pain and frustration may intensify significantly. Fortunately, there are several resources available to children of divorcing parents that may help them work through their emotions and learn to cope with this change.

How can I request a prenup without upsetting my partner?

Most couples are very aware and accepting of the fact that nearly half of all marriages end in divorce. To protect their interests in the event of divorce, many choose to alleviate the stress felt during property division by having a prenuptial agreement in place. Even though we may all be aware of the potential for marriages to end badly, we normally don't want to think too much about it. It is for this reason that many couples still have trouble discussing prenups. Fortunately, discussing the possibility of an unhappy ending may actually help deliver a long, healthy marriage.
