Keep future financial security in mind when going through divorce

14309971_S.jpgDivorce is a difficult process. From navigating through the emotional turmoil of an ending relationship to attempting to split finances, divorce can be overwhelming. Whether a divorce is contentious or not, it can be easy for couples to fall into the "money grab" trap. Although coming out of the divorce with the larger chunk of money in the present may feel like a win, it could lead to financial insecurity in the future.

Older divorcing couples, Part 2: making smart financial decisions

12361451_S.jpgWe discussed some special concerns of persons involved in so-called "gray divorces" in our immediately preceding blog post. A financial strategist and media commentator on divorce says that those people -- divorcing individuals in their 50s and beyond -- need to view divorce "as a business transaction."

Who's right? Are men still undermined in family law matters?

12218218_S.jpgIn the great debate in family law concerning the judicial treatment of fathers who press for their rights in court, there are strong viewpoints all across the opinion spectrum.

12394625_S.jpgSometimes celebrity-related stories regarding family law topics are more than purely entertaining. For many people, indeed, they can be highly instructive and broadly relevant, notwithstanding the sometimes singularly large dimensions of what is at stake.

Improving economy may lead to more divorces

16467947_S.jpgDoes the economy play a role in the divorce rate in the United States? Statistics seem to suggest so. A new study claims the divorce rate declined during the recession because couples couldn't afford to get divorced. Now that the economy is improving, the divorce rate has increased. 

Don't let your soon-to-be ex hide assets in a divorce

20850576_s.jpgIt can be an ugly situation when it happens, but unfortunately it's a reality: sometimes a spouse in a divorce will try to hide marital assets from the division of property. This kind of dishonest behavior is illegal in Illinois, but the risk of it happening is probably greater if one spouse has traditionally handled most of the financial matters.
