What is a shared parenting plan?

As you move through the divorce process, you'll have many important details on your mind. If you have at least one child with your former spouse, you need to do whatever it takes to remain a major part of their life.

In some cases, parents are unable to get along well enough to make joint decisions regarding their divorce, child custody arrangement, and other important details.

Benefits of a prenuptial agreement before a second marriage

Were you previously married? Did your relationship end in divorce?

If you did not have a prenuptial agreement in place, it's safe to assume that you're all too familiar with the property division process. Taking this one step further, you may not be happy with the way things ended with regard to what you received.

There are things you can’t include in a prenuptial agreement

Are you interested in creating a prenuptial agreement? Is this something you've discussed with your soon to be spouse?

If you find yourself in this position, it's a must to better understand what you are and are not permitted to include. The last thing you want to do is create a prenuptial agreement that will not hold up in court if the time comes.

You should understand the goals of divorce mediation

Have you and your spouse come to the conclusion that divorce is the best way to move forward with your life? If you find yourself in this position, you have a couple of options.

First off, you can go through the traditional process of litigation. This may not be something you want to do, but many find that they have no other option.

How should you tell your spouse you want a divorce?

No married individuals look forward to the day when they ask their spouse for a divorce. However, you could find yourself in this position at some point in the future.

If you realize that the time to ask for a divorce has come, there are a few things you can do to make the process a bit less stressful. Here are some tips to follow:

Paying child support on time is essential to your custody case

Perhaps you were aware that your marriage was on shaky ground, or maybe being served with notice of your spouse's intention to divorce you was the first time you knew that your marriage was going to end. Whatever the case, temporary custody and support orders typically favor the filing spouse.

If you hope to share custody or obtain full custody of your children, it can be heartbreaking to have to limit your time with them to short visits and perhaps overnight stays on weekends until the divorce is finalized. It can also be frustrating to suddenly be paying child support, reducing your income. It is critical to pay child support on time, particularly if you hope to share custody.

Make a property division checklist during a divorce

Are you in the early stages of the divorce process? If so, now is the time to turn your attention to property division. At some point, this will consume your mind as you attempt to do what's right for you and your future.

As one half of a married couple, there is a good chance you decided at some point to make a purchase with your spouse. While there is nothing wrong with this, it can cloud the lines of ownership if you move forward with a divorce.

5 key signs that a prenup is a good idea

A prenup may be a bit of a touchy subject, but you have to remember that marriage, in the eyes of the law, isn't romantic. It's a contract. A prenup is just part of that contract, and it works to protect you should the contract ever be terminated. You may want a prenup if:

1. You're going to quit your job. Maybe you've been working for a decade, but your new spouse will now support you while you raise the kids. The prenup can put financial regulations in place so you know you and the kids will be supported after a divorce.
