My spouse cheated on me. Will that affect the divorce?

We have noted in a number of our posts how divorce can be a stressful time in life, especially if the basis for the divorce is adultery. Aside from the emotional trauma infidelity can cause, some people may be concerned that an extramarital affair may negatively affect them in family court. This post will briefly explore this question and provide some basic answers.

Staying in an unhappy marriage isn't a sacrifice you have to make

Lying awake waiting for a scared or sick child to fall asleep when a tough day at work had you wanting a bath and a glass of chardonnay. Taking your kids to the park when taking a run would do more for your waistline. Spending hundreds of dollars you saved for airfare and hotels on tutoring to keep them from falling behind.

What happens if you have different views on an asset's value?

Indeed, asset division is an important part of divorce and can raise passionate arguments regarding how the marital estate should be apportioned. This could be complicated when marital assets must be sold (such as a home or business) and no consensus exists regarding a fair market value. The sweat equity put into a business or personal modifications to a home may lead to mixed emotions over the true value of such property.

How to have the right mindset in divorce

If you are considering divorce, or are in the midst of a custody dispute, you may think that the worst is yet to come. After all, people usually don't go into a divorce cheerfully. Because of the emotional strain that divorces and custody battles can have on a person, it is important to go into these situations with the right mindset. Not only can it be emotionally forgiving, it could also save you thousands of dollars in legal fees.

When parents disagree, who gets the final say?

We are several days into the New Year now. For children, the holiday season is well in the past. Their minds are focused on the future. Many students already have ideas about warmer weather and fun plans for spring break. If you have teenagers of the driving age, they might be asking about trips that don't involve you.
