Your guide to co-parenting

Managing a shared custody situation can produce an enormous amount of stress, not just on you, but your children as well. For example, if you are parenting in a successful and healthy manner, but your future ex-husband is not, then your children could suffer the negative effects. Furthermore, your children could be at risk for developmental problems along the way. The same holds true if there are vast differences in disciplinary techniques, for instance, if you are more lenient and your ex is strict.

Understanding how your divorce could impact your retirement

When people think of divorces, typically young couples come to mind. However, it is increasingly common for couples over the age of 50 to decide that it's time to call it quits. Sometimes, these divorces are the result of simply growing apart over the years. Other times, it's the result of restlessness due to empty nest syndrome. One spouse may have had an affair. There are many different reasons why couples who have been together for decades decide to divorce.

Is it time to consider stepparent adoption?

You fell in love with and married someone who already had a child from previous marriage or relationship. Maybe the biological parent died unexpectedly or perhaps that parent has never claimed his or her rights, choosing instead to eschew having a relationship with the child in question. Over time, you've come to love your stepchild, and you want to make that bond something permanent and legally recognized.

Beware when divorcing a narcissist

You obviously didn't discern the signs of your soon-to-be ex's narcissism prior to your marriage — or there wouldn't have been a marriage. However, since then, you have had many opportunities to see of what he or she is capable.

No prenup? Consider a postnup

You had a whirlwind romance that seemed too good to be true, but when you said your vows, you knew you had finally found "The One." Now, after several years of a rocky marriage, you have concerns that he only married you for your money. You were so swept up in the passion and the romance, you did not even consider a prenuptial agreement. Fortunately, it is not too late. You still have time to put a postnuptial agreement in place to protect your assets.

What rights do you, as a grandparent, have during a divorce?

Watching your child go through a divorce is difficult. It's even worse when you have to worry about whether your ex in-law will allow you to spend time with your grandchildren. In some cases, the right to visitation is an issue even if your child has full or partial custody of your grandchildren.
