Is your midlife crisis actually about your marriage?

Upon reaching your 40s or 50s, you might begin to feel like you’re waking up from a dream. Suddenly, you realize that time flew past you so quickly that you barely recognize your life. It’s as if the 20-year-old version of you hopped into a time machine – and what you saw was disappointing.

Avoid financial fallout after divorce

During a divorce, the division of assets and debt can transform your financial situation. You could find yourself in a less stable position than when you were still married. What you do after the divorce is complete, however, could help you regain financial independence – or create massive debt.

Discussing child support and its importance

Having a child is a massive responsibility. When you and your spouse raise your son or daughter, there will be myriad commitments and things you need to look out for. Over time, you will also spend a lot of money to make sure your child is educated, healthy, and happy. And in many of the same ways, if you and your spouse eventually get divorced, your child support payments will be used for the same reasons.

Tax reform threatens the alimony deductible

If you’ve been keeping up with the news in Maryland, you have probably heard about the possible changes taking place in tax policies. Congress has proposed eliminating several deductions for everything from health care to student loans, but the government now aims some changes at alimony.

Discussing paternity, a complex family law topic

An issue that can often be ignored in the general conversation about family law and divorce cases is the concept of paternity.

But legally speaking, there can be some complicated situations with paternity, and when a divorce is involved, there can often be contentious issues at hand.

After your divorce, be prepared for modifications

When a couple files for divorce, there will be a lot of work that needs to be done. Both spouses need to agree on a bevy of issues, and any that they can't agree on will go to a judge. Once finalized, the divorce agreement will rule over their post-divorce lives. Both spouses at that point may breathe a sigh of relief and think "well at least I don't have to think about or deal with that again."

So many critical issues in play during a divorce

There are so many different issues that could be at play in any given divorce, that it is hard to predict exactly how any individual divorce case will proceed. The only thing you can know is that there are myriad variables and numerous different ways that they could play out. For this reason, and it is one of many reasons, it is imperative for the divorcing spouses to consult with an attorney. Without one, they put themselves at great risk.

On military divorce and the need for legal help

Imagine a typical divorce. In fact, forget that we even said "typical" because no two divorces will be the same. Just imagine a divorce. If you were to go by stereotypes, you are probably imaging a couple with children, and the two spouses are angry with each other. They can't go on like this, so they decide to file for divorce. They have to deal with child custody, child support, property division, estates, marital assets, and numerous other issues.
