If you are getting a divorce, or are thinking of divorcing, you've probably given some thought to how you will handle the new changes. One area that will likely look a lot different is your taxes. Whenever possible, it is important to look at your financial situation both within the marriage as well as how you expect things to look once you are both on your own.
Co-parenting after a divorce is one of the best ways to help children adjust to the changes in their family and their environment. While it isn't the same as having two parents in the same household, it can certainly provide a stronger sense of stability than parents who live separately and fight or who have little contact with their children once they move out.
No one thinks that they are going to get divorced when they say I do. You didn't, and yet here you are.
The holidays are over, and maybe you feel like your marriage is too. You are not alone. The holidays are an extremely stressful time for many couples and as soon as the New Year starts, many people are ready to look seriously at their relationship. They either see the need to resolve their issues or dissolve the marriage.
