Things to consider for a successful post-divorce school year

Divorced parents in Virginia can work together for the long-term well-being of their children. Part of this is helping them successfully meet challenges they face, such as starting a new school year.

Common mistakes that delay or derail bankruptcy filings

Debtors in Virginia understand that filing for bankruptcy might relieve their debt burdens and help them regain control of their financial lives.

Their young millennial counterparts, who range in age from 21 to 25, have an average debt of nearly $12,000, which is largely fueled by college loan and credit card debt.

Newly divorced parents in Virginia may be confused about the different types of child support cases that exist.

Student loan debt could lead to divorce

In Virginia and across the country, much attention has been paid to the social issues that surround the nation's growing student loan debt. Young people are particularly affected by educational debt and are graduating from college and university with larger burdens than in the past. The average student loan debt across the country is $34,144, but graduates of the class of 2017 owe an average of $39,400 in educational debt. While many have discussed the effects that these substantial debt burdens have on the choices that young people make, the effects can move far beyond career decisions and financial management.
