Divorce can impact your toddler's behavior and development

It can be very difficult to tell any child that you and their other parent aren't going to be living together anymore as a family. While many parents assume that the younger a child is, the less of a lasting impression their divorce will have on their lives, this isn't the case. A split can have a significant psychological impact on children as young as toddlers.

What are the first matters divorcing couples need to discuss?

Most couples don't decide to divorce on the spur of the moment. There's usually a build-up to it instead. Most couples file for divorce once they've grown tired of fighting to make things work. There's generally no chance of reconciliation for them. Spouses that are committed to walking away from their marriage should start discussing certain matters right away.

Be careful not to give away your inheritance to your ex

It doesn't matter whether you live in an equitable distribution state like Florida or in the small handful of states that follow the community property approach in a divorce. Inheritance is almost always considered property that solely belongs to just one spouse. However, there are some missteps you can make that may cause your inheritance to be considered joint property with your spouse.

What you need to know about settling your divorce out of court

Have you and your spouse decided to move forward with divorce? If this is a decision that you arrived at together, it may be possible for both of you to work through the terms of your final divorce order together. While this is not an easy process to walk through, it is not always necessary to go to court.

Steps that you can take to minimize the emotional toll of divorce

When someone's preparing to get divorced, they often talk about the devastating financial impact that it has on their life. Few people delve into how emotionally taxing that it can be. Fortunately, there are some strategies that you can employ to minimize the impact your divorce has on your emotional wellbeing and thus your overall life.
