5 ways to manage stress during divorce

Even if you think your divorce is going to be easy, it is still going to be stressful. You are going to have to face some hard choices, such as whether to keep your home in Pembroke Pines or sell it and split the proceeds with your future ex-husband. In addition, you will have to work out visitation and a custody schedule for your children and even which one of you will keep the family dog.

Divorcing after 50? Avoid these missteps

Divorce at any age is difficult, but when you are over 50 years old, it may seem especially so. You will have to face some big changes. For example, if your husband took care of paying the bills and the mortgage on your Pembroke Pines house, you may now have to handle these kinds of things on your own. In order to make the adjustment to your new life as painless as possible, it is important to avoid some common financial mistakes.

Will your spouse's bad behavior impact custody in your divorce?

Everyone has a reason for seeking divorce, but some people experience more serious issues than others in their marriage. If one spouse has become physically or sexually abusive or developed addiction issues during the marriage, it can put everyone in the family at risk. These kinds of situations can lead to dramatic divorces and serious concerns.

Understanding how Florida divides assets during a divorce

Getting a divorce generally means a lot of social and financial uncertainty. You may not know where you will live, what days of the week you can see your children or how much you'll still have of your retirement savings. Unless you have an ironclad prenuptial agreement on record for your marriage, it can be quite difficult to predict the likely outcome to the asset division process.

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.
