Proper handling can prevent taxation of retirement funds in divorce

A divorce is known to be one of the most emotionally difficult experiences a person can weather. With decisions ranging from child custody and visitation to property division or even the division of business assets and more, a divorce touches virtually every aspect of one’s life. Divorce legal issues can become even more complex when the reality of taxes or other penalties become part of the equation.

Military divorce rate affected by deployment time and conditions

Military families know that they face unique challenges that civilians simply do not always understand. The bonds that can be created by banding together through multiple moves can be beautiful and strong. However, the frequency of moves and/or the impact of separations can be devastating. A couple facing a military divorce understands all too well the ramifications of their situation.

Children need full attention of parents after divorce

One of the most important things that any child needs from his or her parents is time. The quality of that time is also important. Quality time, not divided attention, is what children require to learn valuable emotional and social life lessons. That can be difficult in today’s society where parents seem to be virtually married to cell phone or other such devices. In a child’s eyes, the challenge with that can be great.

Child support costs often higher than parents thought

A divorce is never easy on anyone and the involvement of minor children can only make it more complex. Financially speaking, the impact of a divorce hits both parties and for the spouse that may end up being ordered to pay either spousal support and/or child support, it can feel extreme at times. Couples considering a divorce should be aware of the ramifications of child support awards or payments.
