Child custody issues are among the most difficult and emotional ones faced during and after divorce. Our firm helps clients work out a parenting plan that has the children's best interests in mind.
From an outsider's prospective, getting the house in a divorce may be seen as a major victory. After all, for most couples, their homes are their most valuable assets. Plus, for those parents that retain custody of the kids, it's nice to still have adequate space to accommodate them. Yet in many cases, getting the house as part of a property division settlement can be as much of a curse for some as it is a blessing for others.
Telling your kids that you and your spouse are breaking up is tough. Naturally enough, you're probably under a great deal of stress yourself, and your own feelings about the situation may be mixed, at best. You know that your kids won't be thrilled, and you may worry the situation could cause them long-term harm.
We're heading into Wedding Season, so I bet at least some of you out there are planning to tie the knot in just a month or two. Congratulations!
