Helping children of divorce plan for the holidays

The holidays are usually a time for joy and family. However, as some Virginia families know, they can also be the source of stress and worry, particularly when it comes to planning holiday schedules for children after a divorce. Although the emotions associated with ending a marriage can be overwhelming for all involved, there are ways parents can make the experience more enjoyable for their children while maintaining a calm environment.

Tips for giving kids stability after divorce

When parents in Virginia get a divorce, their children may struggle to adjust. However, parents can take steps to make the process less difficult. They should avoid engaging in conflict in front of their children, and they should try to change their routines as little as possible. They should keep children in the same school if they can and should try to agree on a set of expectations that will be similar in both their homes. Children may lose touch with cousins and other extended family members on one side during a divorce, so parents should encourage these relationships.

What happens to your frozen embryos during a divorce?

More American couples are turning to in vitro fertilization (IVF) to get pregnant. Research suggests around 5 percent of American couples will try IVF to have a baby this year. However, some of these couples will have to face a tough decision about what to do with their frozen embryos if their marriage ends in divorce.

How parents can help kids get through divorce

When parents in Virginia consider divorce, they may be deeply unhappy in their marriages but concerned about how the split would affect their children. Many parents remain in failing marriages for years due to concerns about how their kids would react to the divorce. In many cases, the kids may have a more difficult time dealing with the effects of staying together for the children than with their parents' divorce. By staying aware of the kids' emotional needs, parents can help their children to deal effectively with the challenges that can accompany divorce.

How to protect a business from divorce

Virginia business owners might want to take steps to protect their ventures in case of a divorce. Even though the other spouse may have nothing to do with the company, it might be possible for that person to claim half of the business or half of the value that it has gained since the date of the marriage.

The link between profession and divorce

The job a person has tends to have a direct impact on his or her life. For instance, it can be a source of stress that affects health and relationships. In some cases, working with members of the opposite sex increases a person's chances of getting a divorce. Of course, this doesn't mean that a Virginia spouse will experience a failed marriage just because of who they work with.

Taking care of finances before and after divorce

Divorce can put a former spouse under financial and emotional stress. For seniors, the process may be especially destabilizing financially as it can be shocking to go from a two-income household to just a single income. However, seniors in Virginia who are approaching or going through a divorce can take steps to mitigate the financial harm.

Divorce for older adults increases, but so can health problems

In 2012, a study found a surge in divorce among adults who were 50 and older. This age group was divorcing at twice the 1990 rate. Dubbed "gray divorce", researchers say the phenomenon has not slowed, and they have identified several factors that may contribute. Expectations for what marriage can offer have risen, and women are less dependent on men financially than in previous generations and thus more likely to leave their marriages. Longer life spans also may mean people are less willing to remain in an unsatisfying marriage.

Why couples might need a prenuptial agreement

The conversation about getting a prenuptial agreement can be a difficult one, but it can also be an important document for protecting people financially. A prenup may be particularly important for people in Virginia who are going into a second marriage. If one person is bringing significant assets into the marriage, that person might want a prenuptial agreement to ensure those assets are protected in case of divorce. If one spouse earns significantly more than the other, the lower-earning spouse may want to make sure there will be adequate alimony payments.
