Trying to figure out a parenting schedule? These tips may help

Perhaps the most important parts of a divorce for parents here in Phoenix are the issues surrounding their children. While your marriage may be over, you will always be parents. You and your future former spouse may agree to put the needs of your children first.

Women leave financial planning to husbands at their own risk

Divorcing women often have a more difficult time navigating their financial future as newly-single people than their husbands. A significant factor behind this imbalance is their lack of involvement in the couple's investment and financial planning during the marriage.

Kids of divorce have fundamental rights

Most divorcing parents believe they're doing the best they can to help their kids transition to their new "normal." However, too often, it's easy for parents to get caught up in their own feelings towards their co-parent and neglect to realize that they aren't doing what's best for their kids. One way for parents to stay focused on what's in their children's best interests is to recognize that they have fundamental rights.

How to avoid having a prenuptial agreement thrown out in court

A prenuptial agreement can be worthwhile for just about any couple who is tying the knot. However, if you are bringing considerable assets (or debt) into the marriage, have children from a previous marriage or relationship or own a business, a prenup can be particularly valuable should the marriage end.

Avoiding conflict with your co-parent doesn't help your kids

Some people seem to thrive on conflict. Others try to avoid it at all costs. If you fall into the latter category or maybe you just had enough conflict during your marriage, you may be hesitant to confront your ex-spouse on issues involving your children.

How to prevent sibling disputes among your kids after you're gone

If you have more than one child, it's essential to do everything possible when you're developing your estate plan to prevent situations where your kids may feel pitted against one another or believe that they've been treated unfairly compared to their sibling(s). Even siblings who have good relationships can see those relationships sour when there are considerable assets on the line.

What happens when co-parents disagree on therapy for a child?

When children of divorcing parents experience difficulty adjusting to the split, it's often hard to determine whether they should see a therapist. It's not uncommon for co-parents to disagree on this issue. People's views about seeking psychological help can be very strong. If a couple is already battling over multiple issues in the divorce, it's not surprising that they may disagree about whether their children should get psychological counseling.
